Topics in Language Disorders: January/March 2022 - Volume 42 - Issue 1 - p 57-75 doi: 10.1097/TLD.0000000000000272 Buy Metrics Abstract This article highlights the value for speech–language pathologists of considering the overall stuttering condition—including speakers' experiences during and around moments of stuttering—in treatment with individuals who stutter. We first highlight a framework for conceptualizing the entirety of the stuttering condition. We then present recent research and clinical perspectives about stuttering to support the claim that speech–language pathologists who account for individual differences in how their clients experience stuttering are better positioned to treat stuttering more effectively. Ultimately, this will yield better treatment outcomes and help clinicians achieve greater gains in quality of life for their clients who stutter. © 2022 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
