SLP Masterclass Series

Stuttering is consistently identified as the practice area that SLPs feel least equipped for. How do you measure progress in therapy, when the child isn’t interested in using their speech tools? How do you encourage a student to speak up in class? What do you say to a parent who wants their child to be fluent? What is the goal of stuttering therapy?

Stuttering 201: Back to Basics

July 3rd – 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM

July 4th – 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM

How comfortable are you with stuttering treatment? Not very? You are not alone!  Stuttering has consistently been identified as one practice area for which speech professionals feel ill-equipped, and it’s easy to understand why.

  • How can we measure progress in therapy, when the child isn’t interested in using their speech tools?
  • How do we successfully encourage students to speak up in class?
  • What should we say to parents who want their child to be fluent?
  • What are the ultimate goals of stuttering therapy?

Our 2018 Masterclass is designed for those clinicians who may not feel as comfortable with stuttering treatments as they’d like. This comprehensive 2-day seminar is designed to deepen clinicians’ understanding of stuttering as a full life experience, as well as to increase specific therapy skills. Topics include updates on the current state of the field, exploration of new behavioral interventions, and counseling, and will culminate in a facilitated Q&A with members of the NSA, including an open discussion about what people who stutter want and need most from therapy.

This 2-day Masterclass Series is held in conjunction with our 35th Annual Conference in Chicago, IL, so mark your calendars for July 3-4, 2018, and then stick around July 4-8 for the Annual Conference itself. This 2-day event offers up to 0.8 ASHA CEU’s, in addition to those offered during the Annual Conference.  Save, print, and share our 2018 Masterclass info with your colleagues, then save money and register for both!
