Overview

Stuttering: Foundations and Clinical Applications, 2/e has been considered the most comprehensive, complete presentation of the science and treatment of stuttering available in a single text—how stuttering is explained, and how stuttering is treated. The text is unique in its coverage of the stuttering population, its in-depth look at stuttering therapy at various ages, and its original approach that invites students to offer critical appraisals of differing theoretical viewpoints. The new Second Edition has been revamped editorially to ensure ease of readability. It highlights sections with the latest scientific knowledge of stuttering regarding incidence and prevalence, onset natural recovery, and genetics; includes completely revised sections on brain anatomy and physiology, motor aspects, and cluttering; and updates the material with new case studies, tables and figures, and a new outline format for treatment procedures.
