Hi Anna, I agree with your "education about humanity " thoughts completely. I believe the DSM gives a good possibility of doing this while at the same time providing the details/codes/system needed by insurance companies. Unfortunately I don't believe the DSM is used widely enough by SLPs. Also for reasons highlighted in my paper I believe the education process about stuttering would be enhanced by changing DSM to include the new term Stuttered Speech Syndrome. I hope you agree.
