This is part 3 of a 3-part cluttering course in which treatment plans and goals are outlined and explained. Clinicians will gain insight on specific strategies for treating cluttering, as well as examples of activities that may be applied to their current clients.

1. Developing a Treatment Plan and Goals

This chapter will cover the areas that are necessary to consider when planning treatment, including specific goal areas and what aspect of speech they aim to address.

2. What If the Client Clutters AND Stutters?

Because stuttering and cluttering often co-occur, it can be difficult to judge how and when to treat both disorders together. It is important to approach the treatment plan with intention. This chapter explores how to determine the appropriate plan for a client who both stutters and clutters.

3. Strategies for Effective Communication

This chapter contains current best practice for treatment of cluttering. Clinicians will learn about specific strategies that may require equipment or applications but also those that do not and are more easily accessible.

4. Therapy Session Activities

This chapter will provide specific activities that incorporate best-practice strategies and support cluttering goals. Examples of treatment materials will be provided, along with explanations of activities and outlines of application. This element of this course allows for immediate implementation in clinical practice.
