Hi Judith, Thank you for this interesting article about stuttering and Down’s syndrome. I am currently a first-year SLP graduate student at NYU, but previously worked for four years as a high school special education teacher. When working with adolescents with Down’s syndrome who stutter, what strategies do you discuss with parents and teachers to get them involved in the treatment process to help reduce shame and avoidance behaviors? Are there any main differences in your treatment approach for adolescents with Down’s syndrome and your treatment approach for other adolescent populations you have worked with? Thanks, Mindy Nollett
