My name is Alex and I am a graduate student that is currently in a Fluency course. I recently presented information to my class about the Successful Stuttering Management Program (SSMP). I was wondering if any of you have had any experience with this program or have attended the camp that Eastern Washington University puts on every summer? The program is very interesting to me due to how intensive it is.
If you have had any experience with this program, what are your thoughts on the program referring to PWS as “stutterers”? I was very caught off guard that individuals who go through this program graduate with the title “Expert Stutterer”. This could be an acceptability feature of the program for the individual who stutters. I have also considered it to be a reason that the most recent publication was almost 20 years ago. I am curious to hear individuals’ thoughts on the program, whether they have considered it for themselves, or recommended it to clients!
Thanks in advance!
