Fluency For Ages 3-6: When To Start Therapy And What To Do! **

Presented by Susie Harder, M.A., CCC-SLP (Owner & Fluency Consultant of Central Valley Stuttering Center) (3 hrs)

This 3-hour workshop will focus on children ages 3-6 who are showing signs of stuttering. As Speech-Language Pathologists, we have many decisions to make about when therapy is warranted and what to do to best serve children in this age range.  The course will primarily outline a) how to decide when (and if) a child needs to begin speech therapy, b) specific strategies for therapy sessions, and c) how to structure parent involvement (even in the schools) for maximum effectiveness and carryover of fluency into everyday situations.
