My name is Andrea Martinez, and I am a second-year SLP graduate student at Idaho State Univeristy. I have learned so much in my fluency class this semester about how stuttering is more than just overt stuttering behaviors. How do I talk to SLPs who may still believe that stuttering treatment is about reducing overt behaviors and only targets increasing fluency in treatment? I do not want to come off as rude or say the SLP is wrong, especially as a new SLP fresh out of grad school. I think this is important for all SLPs to know but don’t know how to present it in a way that’s educational and not as an attack. Thank you in advance; I look forwards to reading the replies.
