Stuttering Modification and Graduate School (297)

Robert Quesal joins Peter Reitzes to answer a listener question on why it seems that speech-language pathologists are trained more in fluency shaping than stuttering modification.

Bob “the Expert” Quesal and Peter share that, like the listener who asked the question, it is their experience that graduate programs in speech-language pathology seem to teach more about fluency shaping than stuttering modification treatment approaches. Bob and Peter discuss the different reasons why some professors may be uncomfortable teaching stuttering modification.
