Uses an approach based on behavioural principles and a hierarchy of stages of confident speaking originally conceived by Anthony Glassberg. Summarises relevant literature and theory and provides detailed ideas on assessment and management.

Includes case examples, photocopiable material, and a discussion about progress, transfer and discharge. Written for teachers, clinical and educational psychologists, speech language therapists, child psychiatrists and parents.
