I was introduced to the Iceberg analogy in my graduate course covering stuttering. I learn alot from analogies so your article made things clearer for me. Breaking the iceberg down into size, density, and hardness helped me to better understand the people I will be working with as an SLP and how they handle their stuttering. I also have a question for you. What do you have to say about such therapy programs that focus predominantly on the physical aspect of stuttering and put the 90% below the iceberg on the back burner such as the Hollins Precision Fluency Program?
