CSD associate professor gives presentation on early childhood stuttering

Nathan Maxfield presenting

Maxfield speaks at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital.

Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) Associate Professor Nathan Maxfield, PhD, CCC-SLP, recently gave an invited talk at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital (JHACH). Maxfield, who is also the principal investigator of the Bulls Stuttering Lab, updated speech-language pathologists working in the JHACH system about emerging trends in the evaluation and treatment of early childhood stuttering.

The presentation was part of JHACH's celebration of National Speech-Language-Hearing Month. Each May, National Speech-Language-Hearing Month provides an opportunity to raise awareness about communication disorders and the role of speech-language pathologists and audiologists in providing life-altering treatment.

Maxfield will return to JHACH in November to present a second talk on emerging trends in evaluating and treating school-age children who stutter.
