The Science and Practice of Stuttering Treatment: A Symposium is a comprehensive resource for practitioners and researchers that spans the scientific basis and clinical management of stutters in people of all ages, from preschoolers to adults.

Written by an international team of clinical and research leaders in the field of speech and language pathology, as well as scientists from the fields of epidemiology and neurology, the book offers a truly comprehensive coverage of contemporary stuttering management.

Each chapter provides information on the 'Theoretical Basis of the Treatment', 'Outline of the Treatment', 'Scientific Evidence for the Treatment', 'Advantages and Disadvantages of the Treatment', 'Planned Future Empirical Development', and conclude with an in-depth critical review.

This book is a must-have resource for speech and language pathologists, researchers and educators worldwide.


  • Offers a rigorous critical review of each treatment
  • Written by leading international experts in the field
  • Completely up to date with the latest clinical and scientific research

“This book is the output from the Research Symposium held in Croatia in 2010.  This text is unusual in that it not only reflects the content of the Symposium presentations, but also reports the discussion that the presentations generated. The discussions that ensued were recorded and transcribed… The consistent organisation of each paper in the collection allows the reader to quickly access the critical information and to make direct comparisons across therapies… (and) provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of a variety of speech restructuring programs...  The advantages/disadvantages and the discussion sections in each chapter help the reader with appraisal of the material presented and to make some judgements about generality and value…

The reader feels exposed to the atmosphere and dynamics of the Symposium in a way that is rarely captured outside the conference auditorium.”
- A review from Sharon Millard (PhD., MRCSLT), Research Lead and Expert Speech and Language Therapist, The Michael Palin Centre, Whittington Health, London, UK
