Scoring Disfluencies (#6350)
California State University, Chico Bundle • 58m
Many methods have been developed to count speech disfluencies, and in this 1-hour video, clinicians are trained to differentiate between various types of disfluencies, how to code them, and analyze the data accordingly.
While this is just one aspect of a comprehensive fluency assessment, it is important to obtain reliable frequency measures for assessment purposes as well as to determine treatment effectiveness.
After being trained in several methods, including Northwestern University's "Systematic Disfluency Analysis" (Campbell and Hill, 1987) and Vanderbilt University's disfluency counting method (Conture, 2001), Diane Parris, M.S., CCC-SLP, BRS-FD of Boston University demonstrates a pragmatic approach to scoring disfluencies using two case examples for practice.
