Stuttering in Conjunction with Speech and Language Delays

Hello, my name is Lorraine, I am currently working towards earning my masters degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences. I really enjoyed looking through the presentations and papers in this conference and it was great learning about people’s personal experiences with stuttering. I was wondering if you had any advice for working with a child with extensive speech and language delays in addition to a stutter? I know some experts have a hard stand that you should only focus on fluency rather then articulation in therapy while others have more of a flexible rule on this. Keeping in mind that every case is different, is there any recent research on working with kids with a phonological disorder and a stutter and how to decide what to treat first?
