Minimizing Bullying for Children Who Stutter
Sponsored By: The Pennsylvania Speech-Language-Hearing Association
May 7, 2013 Webinar – 6:30 to 8:30 pm (est.)
J. Scott Yaruss, PhD, CCC-SLP, BRS-FD, ASHA Fellow, will present this webinar from 6:30-8:30 pm. Studies have shown that children who stutter are more likely to experience bullying than children who do not stutter. Unfortunately, it is particularly hard for children who stutter to respond to such experiences, given their unique combination of communication difficulties and the emotional/cognitive consequences of both stuttering and bullying. This presentation will describe real-world, practical strategies that speech-language pathologists can use to help children who stutter minimize bullying and respond appropriately to bullying situations. Example of strategies include methods for educating other children about stuttering so they will be less likely to react negatively when a child stutters, as well as methods for helping children who stutter reduce their own negative reactions when other children comment about their speech. Strategies for involving parents and teachers in a comprehensive bullying management program will also be described. Participants will find that they can make a real difference in children's lives by helping them manage bullying effectively. This program is offered for .2 CEUs.
