Helping Parents Foster Self-Regulation in Children Who Stutter Ellen M. Kelly, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-F, Vanderbilt University Medical Center

The healthy development of self-regulation has been associated with positive outcomes within emotional, social, academic, and vocational domains across cultures and socio-economic strata. Self-regulation develops primarily in the context of parent-child interactions, and is optimal when consistent with children's developmental stages, experiences, and individual differences. Strategies for helping parents understand the development of self-regulation, and case examples illustrating age-specific recommendations for coaching parents in fostering self-regulation skills in their children who stutter, will be presented.

Partnering with Parents:

A Discussion on Effective Parent Collaboration in Therapy Lee Caggiano, M.A., CCC-SLP, BCS-F

Parents are a critical part of the therapeutic process, but many SLPs are not incorporating them in an effective way. Reasons for doing so can vary from timing of sessions, to settings we work in (such as in the schools), to not feeling confident in managing parental expectations or demands. It can become easy to work just with our clients, but we’re neglecting to remember that parents are our clients as well. Getting parents ‘on board,’ allowing them the opportunity to grieve, to share, to collaborate, can exponentially improve outcomes--and most importantly, the overall quality of life and health of the environment for the children and teens who stutter we work with. Strategies for incorporating parents effectively into therapy, tips for navigating difficult conversations, and opportunities to ask and answer questions will be offered.

Raising Children Who Stutter: Parents’ Perspective Ellen M. Kelly, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-F

A panel of parents will share their stories and answer questions from attendees about their experiences as parents of 8- to 17-year-old children who stutter. Parents new to Camp TALKS (Talking And Learning with Kids who Stutter) and “veteran” parents will talk about their first memories of their children stuttering and how they responded (their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors), as well as what they learned over time, and provide advice to other parents and speech-language pathologists who work with students who stutter. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask the parents questions about their experiences and recommendations.
