Nan's excellent article on What Is Stuttering

Check out Nan's excellent article on What Is Stuttering.

I agree with everything she says on the science side. I mostly agree with what she says about treatment. Except, I would also have mentioned self-help groups and  the importance of effectively dealing with having a handicap, which does not need to involve searching for fluency. She does mention Lidcombe, but only for its ability to move kids who stutter earlier into recovery. That is probably true, but I still do not rule adaptation or measurement effects completely out. And she could have mentioned that other alternatives are no worse.

All-in-all, it shows that she is a regular reader of TheStuteringBrain for many years! ;-)
