Building Resiliency with Young Children Who Stutter: The Why & The How

Julia Hollister, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, BCS-F

The ability to bounce back from challenges is a valuable life skill. Several research studies show that in general, children who stutter tend to be more emotionally reactive, and have lower regulation skills than their peers. This is significant as emotional regulation is a key component to resiliency, and can determine how well a child copes with difficulties in life, including stuttering. Regulation, like other skills, can be learned. This presentation discusses the importance of designing holistic stuttering interventions that include resiliency-building practices. Examples of activities that build emotional regulation skills within the framework of stuttering will be discussed.

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.
