Ages 7 through 11. This practical stuttering intervention program focuses on the child’s fluency, attitudes, feelings, and his/her effectiveness in the pragmatic aspects of communication. The activities provide opportunities for children to practice speaking fluently as they tell stories, answer questions, request information, express opinions, and use language for various other speaking purposes.

In this book, Dr. Tanner presents a detailed description of procedures for conducting assessments, providing remediation, and evaluating progress. The revised edition includes many new activities, strategies for using classroom curriculum materials to build fluency, guidelines for working with parents, and more.

Goals of the Program

• To improve speech fluency by treating the audible and visible characteristics of the speech disorder

• To reduce the anxiety and negative emotions that have come to be associated with speech.

• To modify behaviors, thoughts, and attitudes that are incompatible with the long term achievement of fluency and a positive self concept

• To improve the child’s social interaction skills and his/her effectiveness in the pragmatic uses of language

Speech-language pathologists have used this book to treat fluency within functional communication contexts.
