Speech-Language Pathologists often lament that they feel ill-equipped for treating stuttering. We often hear questions such as:

How do you qualify children for therapy?
How do you measure progress?
What treatment technique is best?
What if the child isn’t interested in using speech tools?
How do you encourage students to participate in class?
What do you say to a parent who just wants the child to stop stuttering?
What is the goal of stuttering therapy, anyway?

If you, yourself, have ever had these questions about stuttering therapy, then the National Stuttering Association’s 2018 Masterclass Series is for you! This interactive 2-day seminar is designed not only to help you increase your skills for working with those who stutter, but will also deepen your understanding of life experiences of those who stutter. This insight will allow you to tailor stuttering therapy to the unique needs of each individual you treat, and will improve your therapy outcomes. Topics will include an update on the current state of the field, an exploration of new behavioral interventions, and ways to incorporate counseling methods into your treatment to ensure the greatest possible success. This comprehensive workshop will culminate in a moderated Q&A session, including NSA members who will share with you what people who stutter really want from therapy.

Our 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 join us for presentations from cutting-edge researchers and opportunities for small group discussion, then stick around July 4-8 for the Annual Conference itself. This symposium offers approximately 1.3 ASHA-approved CEU’s, in addition to those offered during the Annual Conference.  Save, print, and share our 2017 Research Symposium flyer with your colleagues, then save money and register for both!
