Originally published in 1987, this book presented new ideas on the treatment of stuttering, by leading authorities within Britain at the time. There are chapters on children and adolescents, as well as on adults. In each chapter the author describes the therapeutic approach, how it fits into general views on the nature of stuttering, the clients for which it is appropriate, and possible methods of evaluation. The book is aimed at speech therapists and psychologists and provided an important up-date of the subject for practitioners.
