Initial evaluations and IEPs are stressful, especially for a parent experiencing the process for the first time. It's especially confusing for them when their child is diagnosed with something that is probably very concerning and scary for them: a Fluency Disorder. Many parents ask the same questions: What is a Fluency Disorder? How will this affect my child? What will you do during therapy? What can I do at home to help my child?

This professional handout is specifically designed to help you easily and thoroughly answer the most common questions about Fluency Disorders. Simply print and go!

A professional handout defining and explaining Fluency Disorders in lay-man's terms. These handouts mostly focus on stuttering, but cluttering is mentioned. This document answers the following questions:
- What is a Fluency Disorder?
- Differences between typical and atypical disfluencies
- What will the Speech Therapist do for my child?
- What can I do at home to help my child?
The handout consists of a total of three pages. The first page addresses the first three questions above and is designed for all ages. Pages 2 and 3 answer the question, "What can I do at home to help my child?" One page is designed for preschool-age children, and one page is designed for elementary and teenage children.
