I am graduate SLP student. I have been learning in my stuttering class that in therapy, we must remain realistic when setting goals with our clients. We cannot promise that we will eliminate a stutter, but we can work towards eliminating the struggles that may come with the stutter. I can imagine that this may be discouraging for clients to learn that they may never be 100% fluent. What is your advice for effectively delivering this message to clients so that they will not be discouraged, and instead encourage and empower them to work towards the goals of eliminating struggles?
