Welcome to the third and final Perspectives issue for 2007! The theme for this issue is Broadening Assessment and Outcomes. We are fortunate to have such an outstanding group of contributors!
We begin with several articles that consider various topics in assessment. Logan and Haj-Tas start the discussion by sharing their data regarding the influence of sample size when measuring stutter-like disfluencies in adults. Healey provides a description of an assessment scale within a multidimensional framework that can be used not only for assessment purposes, but also for measuring outcomes. Bloom, Cooper-man, and Klein offer a different perspective, that of evaluating the environment of the person who stutters, and illustrate possible application of such information in planning treatment goals and hierarchies. Vanryckghem describes an assessment battery and its uses in the assessment process to measure the ABCs of stuttering. Tetnowski delineates differences between assessment techniques and the strategies that need to be included in an assessment, and how to use each when making clinical decisions.
