Helping Parents Foster Self-Regulation in Their Children Who Stutter - Video plus CEU Assessment

In this one-hour video, Ellen M. Kelly, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-F, of Vanderbilt University Medical Center, discusses the healthy development of self-regulation (i.e., the ability to manage thoughts, feelings and behaviors) in the context of caregiver-child interactions and its positive impact on educational, emotional, physical, social, and communication outcomes. Kelly discusses how therapists can enhance intervention by helping parents understand the development of self-regulation, i.e. how children respond emotionally, cognitively, and behaviorally to their stuttering. She also uses case examples to illustrate recommendations for coaching parents in fostering self-regulation skills with their children who stutter.

This course is offered for 0.1 ASHA CEUs (Intermediate level, Professional area).
