    Past International Stuttering Awareness Day Online Conferences are freely available and contain much valuable information and therapy ideas.

    The following section is designed to provide materials, readings, and approaches to assessment and therapy for speech-language pathologists who work with people who stutter. It is not to be considered a "recipe book" to stuttering therapy, but contains resources which may be adaptable to specific clients. It is more extensive than other therapy sections because I have been building this information personally since 1998. Previously it was part of the Stuttering Home Page (, but it was too difficult to continue to maintain the information in two different places so it has been integrated here. If others have materials they would like to share, please contact Judy Kuster
