Event description

About the Clinical Procedures for School-Age Children who Stutter Workshop

This workshop is designed for speech pathologists to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to assist school-age children who stutter. The information in the workshop is presented by speech pathologists who specialise in stuttering treatment.

The workshop begins with an overview of the characteristics of stuttering in school age children, measurement of stuttering, and initial assessment. Overarching principles to guide clinical practice with this client group are introduced. Evidence-based stuttering treatments are described, and common issues discussed. 

Participants learn through discussion and role-play, through video demonstration and by hearing from all key stakeholders including children who stutter, their parents, speech pathologists and psychologists.

Learning outcomes:  

  • Understand the general characteristics of stuttering in school-age children
  • Assess and measure stuttering in this population
  • Gain an understanding of the role of the speech pathologist when working with this population
