Connect with Balbus Speech as they take social media to another level by providing an online network that allows individuals with speech disorders, and therapists alike to connect via the Internet. Social media and mobile technology join to create a community of stutterers, speech therapists, family members and friends. When you have a vision it is easy for dreams to become reality- “Through my own experiences with speech therapy, I understand the difficulties faced by a whole community of people like me. I always wanted a way to expand the effect of my therapy. I thought: If I attend speech therapy for just an hour each week, what happens when the session ends and I head back into the real world? I struggled to maintain my comfortable level of fluency once therapy sessions ended. I wanted a way to connect, be supported, and find inspiration. That’s where the idea for Balbus Speech originated.” Jack McDermott Founder & CEOJoin the community-Follow Balbus Speech on Twitter @BalbusSpeech,

Erickson S24 Scale
This is the site for scoring procedures:
This is a scale that is typically used for adolescents and adults who stutter, it provides a general indication of a person's interpersonal, social and emotional sensitivity. There are 25 questions that ask for a response either true or fals. The client circles the answer that corresponds to the response that fits them best. A total score is derived from the questions answered from the questionnaire.
Let me know what activities you incorporate in your lesson plans for individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
I really like the way this website is organized because it has something for everyone who is interested in the topics of stuttering,cluttering and other fluency disorders . There are resources for teachers, kids, students, parents, pediatricians, psychologists and many others. Some of the areas that the website is divided up into are: Information about Stuttering, Internet Resources for School-based SLPs, Studies in Other Countries/Cultures, Discussion Forums and E-Publications, Cluttering and Other Fluency Disorders, and many other areas.
Be sure to explore this website because there are a lot of great resources and information pertaining to stuttering.Special thanks to the creator of this website, Judith Maginnis Kuster!
