Hi my name is Demi Dang and I am a graduating senior at California State University Fullerton with a Communication Sciences and Disorders Major. I am currently taking Introduction to Fluency Disorders and I recently learned from PWS speakers and from lectures from class that many SLPs and therapists are not well educated about PWS. One of the PWS speakers mentioned that they had a bad experience with therapy because they made their experience very discouraging. For example, one of his sessions he showed the therapist/SLP what he had been working on and the therapist/SLP told him he wasn’t practicing hard enough and she can tell. However, the PWS speaker was practicing. My question is, as a PWS or a Professional, do you think future SLPAs and SLPs should have further education added to the curriculum nationwide on fluency disorders? In my opinion, this could be beneficial for the client and also clinicians as well.
