Children who stutter know more about their own speech than anyone else. They know the times they stutter and how hard fluency is for them. More important, they know how they feel about their speech. If you can get children to talk about their speech in these ways, you can increase communication and your connection with children. How do you elicit this information? How can you encourage children to talk? And how can you organize children’s words in a helpful way?
As a way to answer these questions, we have written Journal Writing for Children Who Stutter: A personal journey to improve the communication skills of the school age child. This is a 25-page manual that describes a systematic method for discovering a child’s point of view about stuttering. Her/his observations will breathe life into any dry therapeutic materials he might be facing. Our journal will provide a way to collect and organize this priceless material.
