This paper stems from an invited seminar that we presented at the 2010 ASHA convention in Philadelphia. At that time, we were asked to develop a workshop for speech-language pathologists focused on the treatment of adolescents who stutter and to present an approach that integrated two key areas in stuttering therapy for this population: speech modification and related strategies within the context of adolescent development and experience. We present a philosophy of how to work with teens based on understanding where they are developmentally, psychologically, and socially, and we discuss how to use this philosophy to tailor a therapy approach that fits their needs.
