A key component of stuttering therapy is changing the behaviours that result in disfluency. In this one-hour presentation, Carmen Lefevre, Ph.D., of the Centre for Behaviour Change, University College, London introduces the principles and the science of behaviour change and relates it to therapy for stuttering. She discusses a methodology to understand behaviours, conduct behaviour analysis, engage in systematic intervention design, evaluate intervention effectiveness, and refine interventions for maximum effectiveness.
This course is offered for 0.1 ASHA CEUs (Intermediate level, professional area).
