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!
