What is it about?

Individuals who stutter and clutter need support from speech-language pathologists who have experience of, and are skilled in, treating these specific disorders. This paper explores how a curriculum design model, the AISHE model, can be used to design a module on stuttering and cluttering for inclusion in an undergraduate course on speech-language pathology.

Why is it important?

It has been noted that speech-language pathologists graduating from university do not always have the necessary skills to effectively support people with stuttering and cluttering. Using the guidance in this paper, by applying the AISHE module as a framework to design a module, will ensure that those students graduating from speech-language pathology courses have the necessary confidence and competence to treat these disorders.


Having had little exposure to speech-language pathology, I found working as a co-author on this paper very informative with regard to conditions relating to stuttering and cluttering. It was great to discover that, by combing our expertise, we were able to provide guidance to speech-language pathology educators on how to design a module on stuttering and cluttering to include in their undergraduate programmes.
