Summary

This state-of-the art volume is a follow-up to the 1999 publication, Stuttering Research and Practice: Bridging the Gap, edited by Nan Ratner and E. Charles Healey. Like its predecessor, the current book is an edited collection of the presentations from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s Annual Leadership Conference in Fluency and Fluency Disorders.
 
Among the topics covered are evidence-based practice, impact of the self-help and support groups, meta-analyses of selected assessment and intervention programs, current theories of stuttering, and the predicted path of stuttering intervention in the future. The authoritative representation of contributors offers the reader the most up to date presentation of fluency issues, with a special emphasis placed on the practical clinical implications of fluency assessment, treatment, and evolving theories of the disorder.
 
The book is written for fluency specialists and graduate students in programs of fluency disorders. It will also be valuable for the clinicians who wish to upgrade their skills in treating fluency disorders.
