Welcome to the Specialist Roundtable Discussion
Join the American Board of Fluency and Fluency Disorders for an upcoming Virtual Roundtable discussion!
2022 Schedule (subject to change):
May 21, 2022
Recently, there has been dialogue within the larger stuttering community about the implications and ramifications of referring to stuttering as a "fluency disorder." Much of these concerns are outlined in:
Tichenor, S. E., Constantino, C., & Yaruss, J. S. (2022). A Point of View About Fluency. Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 1-8.
We decided to include this topic in our member's survey NOT to alert everyone of a name change but rather to include you in a conversation that our board is currently having surrounding the semantics of using "fluency and fluency disorders" in our designation. The ABFFD is pleased to invite you to this month's round table to allow for current and prospective specialists to come together to share and learn about the differing perspectives.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
