The Stuttering Source - The Stuttering Source Blog - Home The Stuttering Source Blog Media Resources National Speech Contact Clients Only For Teachers? 3/17/2016 0 Comments Stuttering is a fluency disorder that is defined as a disruption in the forward flow of speech. It is commonly characterized by repetitions (ex. ba-ba-baseball), sound prolongations (ex. mmmommy), or blocks (i.e. no sound). Disfluencies may also be accompanied by negative thoughts and feelings about stuttering, avoidance of sounds, words or situations and physical tension or struggle behaviors (ex. eye blinking, lip tension, head nodding, etc.). Stuttering is NOT an emotional disorder, but stuttering can certainly have an emotional impact. As children get older, they may develop “tricks” for hiding their stuttering by swapping out words or planning and rehearsing what they are going to say before speaking. Other children may avoid speaking in certain situations altogether. These “tricks” may make it look like the child is stuttering less or has eliminated stuttering altogether, however this fluency comes at a significant cost to their emotional and social wellbeing as well as their ability to thrive in an educational setting. There are many young children who demonstrate disfluencies in their speech as they go through the natural process of developing language, however these disfluencies look and sound different than stuttering. Consult a speech/language pathologist if you are unsure if what you’re seeing is “true stuttering.” If a differential diagnosis is made early on, the family can make use of the critical window of time that therapy is most effective. HOW CAN TEACHERS HELP? ? Saying things like “slow down”, “think about what you want to say” or “take a deep breath” may help fluent speakers when they are stumbling on their words. However, children who stutter are disfluent for different reasons and these remarks often add more pressure and thus trigger more disfluencies. Instead slow your own rate of speech by adding pauses within your sentences at natural breaks, between your sentences and after the student finishes their thought? to reduce pressure.

Members of the National Stuttering Association (NSA) played a huge role in establishing this week so what better way to celebrate it than to hear from current NSA members? The following excerpts come from the social media accounts of 4 NSA members (with permission).

SPA is also supporting legislation that would extend this mandate to private practitioners and require them to provide the Lidcombe Program in order to be reimbursed by Medicare. Although the SPA’s intentions may be to increase access to treatment for young children who stutter, we must not overlook the ramifications of having the government and private insurance companies intervene with clinical decision-making. The first thing to consider is that there are multiple factors that are known to contribute to the onset of stuttering. Each child has a unique set of abilities and vulnerabilities that determine if and how stuttering is going to persist. Those different circumstances demand different approaches to treatment. A speech pathologist cannot be expected to develop a treatment plan that is specifically tailored to the client when the SPA is using Medicare reimbursement to limit them to one approach. Speech pathologists could be faced with the unfortunate dilemma of deciding whether to use an approach that best fits the child and families’ needs or to use the approach that will get reimbursed.

I do not believe there is a "right" sequence. Each child and family experiences stuttering in a different way due to their temperament, home environment, communities, etc. and their treatment plan has to reflect that. However for new clinicians or clinicians who have little experience with treating a child who stutters, it is understandable that you may want a blueprint of what therapy should look like.

Pediatricians and teachers are often the first professionals that a parent will go to for advice. In order to determine when to refer to a speech/language pathologist, these professionals are faced with the challenge of differentiating between typical disfluencies and true stuttering. Research suggests that anywhere between 75 to 80 percent of children who go through a period of disfluency will outgrow stuttering. This statistic can often lead teachers and pediatricians to suggest that the family “wait and see” before consulting a speech/language pathologist. However, one must also consider the risk of missing a critical window in which treatment is optimal. Early intervention plays a vital role in reducing the likelihood that a child will continue to stutter and can minimize the impact of stuttering on a child’s life--both socially and academically. There are certain risk factors that professionals, as well as families, should consider when deciding what’s best for the child.
