Hi professionals! I am a first year graduate student in speech language pathology at UNC-Chapel Hill. The other week we heard from a guest speaker that mentioned she will not work on articulation issues in her clients while addressing fluency. It is not until after she feels the disfluencies are approriately and sufficiently managed that she will begin to work on articulation. Our professor disagreed in that if a client is mispronouncing words to an extent in which they cannot be understood, it is important to address articulation with the disfluencies. How do you all feel about this topic? Do you focus on one before addressing the other? Thank you for your insight!
