Ms. Eckardt, I thought this was an interesting article and very informative. I did not realize that using typical techniques (for example easy onset) with older children who have Down Syndrome and stutter would make it worse. This would be because of their difficulty of moving their articulators and possible feelings of shame. Thanks for the great article.
