This extensively revised edition is now an up-to-date clinical text, with ideas on relating theory to current practice. It is an invaluable resource for those working with children who are dysfluent, containing revised chapters on all stages of dysfluency and practical ideas and suggestions for therapeutic approaches. Areas covered include: development of stammering; assessment of children who are dysfluent; early dysluency; borderline stammering; confirmed stammering; group therapy; and working with nurseries and schools.
Trudy Stewart is a specialist in dysfluency and has been a service manager since 1986. She studied in America and obtained her PhD in 1991. Jackie Turnbull retired from SLT in July 2009 after 40 years in the profession, over 35 of which were spent as a specialist in dysfluency, working with children and adults. She also worked for many years as a staff counsellor in a large hospital. The collaboration that has grown up between the two of them has sparked further study in stammering. Together they have developed a highly creative clinical practice which has national recognition.
