Stuttering therapy for school age children should be approached with the right tools
This one day workshop is a practical ‘hands on’ workshop for Speech Language Therapists working with school aged children (5-8 years old) who stutter. The workshop is interactive with case studies, videos and role plays used to enhance learning. A half day workshop, offered three months later, is a follow up 'hands on' session which will provide you with the opportunity to practice specific techniques and discuss case studies.
By the end of this workshop, participants will have:
- a theoretical understanding of the available evidence for different treatment and approaches
- the knowledge to assess and provide treatment for this client group
- the opportunity to practice specific techniques/therapy approaches
- an understanding of how feelings and attitudes can impact children who stutter
- strategies to help children deal with teasing and bullying
