I just got the Stuttering Foundation’s Fall 2009 newsletter. For those of you who stutter or work with clients who stutter, this is a great resource for you. This month’s featured articles deal with the use of cognitive behavioral therapy with stutterers and recent research being conducted at Purdue University by Hayley Arnold, Ph.D., who is studying “how language, motor, and emotion factors may influence stuttering in young children.”

I think it is important for us as speech therapists to keep up with current research in our field, especially in relation to the types of clients we work with.
