Graduate Student Training Program
FRIENDS developed the Graduate Student Training Program (GSTP) to help graduate students in Speech Pathology get a better understanding of stuttering and its affect on children and their families. The FRIENDS GSTP will provide a much needed and valuable clinical opportunity for many graduate students. This program will also enhance the knowledge and experience graduate students acquire in the field of stuttering. The GSTP will address the affective, behavioral and cognitive behaviors of a young person who stutters. In order to do this, each graduate student will spend at least one full day working with experienced Speech Language Pathologists in the children’s workshops at the annual three-day convention.
