Read what Nina's customers have to say:
The best material I have ever used—and I use it for all of my elementary fluency students with good success- is the Scott Yaruss and Nina Reardon's [Reeves] The Source for Stuttering. [NOW: School Age Stuttering Therapy: A practical guide] It's based on the latest research on fluency and treatment and is simply outstanding. It's great because the scope is the whole disorder (the impairment, the child's reactions and environmental reaction), not just speech difficulties themselves. I've had students go from speech avoidance and severe stuttering to a sense of empowerment (as they understood what was happening when they stutter) and talking freely in class—with stuttering of course—in a month. Of course, they are still working on their fluency enhancing and stuttering modification techniques, but the “own” a lot of their therapy and are emotionally so much better off in a relatively short time. It's been encouraging to watch! - Jennifer V.; Wisconsin
