Comprehensive Textbook on Cluttering Speech Disorder Released
The authors help readers to understand the complicated disorder known as cluttering, while providing numerous therapy activities and exercises that can be directly incorporated into treatment of people who clutter. Potentially confusing topics are presented with clarity; controversies are explained in accessible terms; and the varied presentations of the condition are sorted so clinicians can approach their clients in an orderly and organized fashion.
Examples of the types of information presented include: defining cluttering (including historical perspectives), differential diagnosis between cluttering and stuttering (as well as numerous other conditions), public awareness and perceptions of cluttering, a wide range of key symptoms for clinicians to evaluate, detailed diagnostic procedures that examine more than just overt speech behaviors, and a careful consideration of therapy development and planning.
