Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
03/01/2014
Licensed speech pathologist Raz offers this title on preschool stuttering as part of the "Help Me Talk Right" series. While there is no known medical reason for stuttered speech, most children begin stuttering between the ages of two and five. While nearly 80 percent of cases resolve on their own, stuttering is easiest to correct in the preschool years. Raz briefly outlines the different forms of stuttering (e.g., repetitions, hesitations, prolongations, blocks) and presents common reactions in families when a child has a stutter. Though dealt with in the main section on helping a child who stutters, the entire book can be summarized with the author's one repetitious piece of advice, "Listen to what your child is saying. Respond to what he said, not how he said it." VERDICT Ultimately, there is little actual advice offered here. The author's presentation is both flat and uninspired, and the text reads like an undergraduate review of the literature.
