Although the camp metaphor may seem strange in this article, let me elaborate on the meaning. This past month, I attended a coaching clinic (camp) for youth soccer. Even though I have coached my daughter’s youth soccer team for the past 2 years, I did not really understand the game. Sure, I had read several of the “Soccer for Dummies” books, visited many soccer coaching Web sites, and watched enough videotapes to understand the basic rules, but I didn’t really understand the strategy.
In other words, I knew the fundamentals and could design drills, but didn’t really know how to help the girls win the game. I think that many clinicians working with people who stutter (PWS) operate in the same fashion. They understand the fundamentals of fluency therapy, but really don’t know how to be totally successful with their clients. The purpose of this article will be to offer strategies to help clinicians make wise diagnostic decisions that will result in maximum success for their clients who stutter.
