Recently, I viewed an editorial in the local newspaper written by a local speech and language pathologist on the topic of stuttering. This professional signed his professional title as "fluency specialist". A red-flag immediately went up; buyer beware. There are fewer than 200 Board-Certified Specialists in Fluency (stuttering) in our Country. The following website lists all certified professionals who have achieved all requirements set forth by the American Speech Language and Hearing Association. Only these professionals are awarded the title Board Certified Specialist. When searching for a qualified professional, be sure to interview them to ascertain exactly what you are getting in a treatment professional.
