During my first read of ‘Positive Stuttering Identity’, I immediately knew that it is the accessible and eye-opening book that all SLPs need to refine their approach to stuttering therapy. This book is perfectly crafted to explain why and how an SLP can integrate stuttering identity into treatment sessions. It perfectly explains to the SLP how to best become a guide for an individual who is on the journey of developing stuttering as a positive part of identity. ‘Positive Stuttering Identity’ equips the SLP with necessary foundational knowledge and how to incorporate this into individual-based treatment.
If you are, or ever plan on, providing therapy to a person who stutters,
I cannot recommend this book enough!
The guide to "Positive Stuttering Identity" supports caregivers and professionals (speech-language pathologists, teachers, counselors, students) to build a framework for supporting children who stutter. The workbook is divided into four chapters: identity, stuttering, positive stuttering identity, and speech therapy - all with accessible, evidence-based research. The workbook comes in digital form, with fillable notes, clickable resources, and the ability to download pages separately as handouts. It features quotes from an interview with Gareth Walkom, person who stutters and innovative entrepreneur.
Is this workbook for me?This workbook is designed for caregivers of children who stutter and professionals, such as speech-language pathologists, SLP students, counselors and teachers, who work with children who stutter.

What does "positive stuttering identity" mean?"Great question, and one we'll talk about at length in the workbook! But, for now - positive stuttering identity refers to an individual's positive, or affirmative, outlook on themselves as a person who stutters. If a child has a positive stuttering identity, it means that they have confidence in their ability to communicate, self-respect for themselves as a person who stutters, and have a positive outlook on their communication in the future.
