It is an intricate task when treating children and adolescents who stutter. Therefore, this poster will provide an overview of the relationship between attention deficit hyperactive disorders (ADHD) and fluency disorders. The poster will present definitions, symptoms, diagnostic methods, and treatment methods as they relate to addressing fluency concerns in children with ADHD. The relationship between fluency disorders and attention deficit hyperactive disorders in adolescents will be explained. The available treatment methods for fluency disorders in children with ADHD comorbidity with cluttering will also be summarized.
1. Participants will have a greater understanding of how fluency disorders present in adolescents with ADHD.
2. Participants will have specific strategies related to the diagnostic process of fluency disorders in adolescence with ADHD.
