50 Great Activities for Children Who Stutter: Lessons, Insights, and Ideas for Therapy Success By Peter Reitzes

50 Great Activities for Children Who Stutter is a refreshing, practical manual for professionals working with school-age children who stutter. The author’s experience as a person who stutters, as a speech-language pathologist, and as a frequent volunteer for self-help organizations has well prepared him to create 50 ingenious, easy-to-use activities, most including several possible adaptations. These fun activities make therapy both clear and successful. The presentation of the activities is down-to-earth and includes step-by-step directions, as well as delightful dialogue to use with the kids. You also get a number of activities specifically designed for therapy groups composed of children who stutter and children with language disorders.

The 50 activities are divided into five categories and include reproducible homework and handouts:

Identifying and Exploring Stuttering Stutter Tag, Stuttering Awards, Candid Camera, Teach Me How to Stutter, Stuttering Private Eye, and more
Practicing Speech Tools Stretching, Bouncing, Pausing, Voluntary Stuttering, Out in the World, Speech Tool Bingo, and more

The activities are the meat of the book, but three other sections should not be missed:
