Jack Henderson, M.S., CCC-SLP

Jack Henderson joins Peter Reitzes to discuss what he wishes his speech-language pathologists (SLPs) had known about stuttering. Mr. Henderson shares that building positive relationships with students is extremely important. Jack urges SLPs not to “jump over” this important aspect of treatment. Mr. Henderson shares his student centered approach in which the SLP and child work together to determine the goals and focus of treatment.
