Excerpt

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's Special Interest Division for Fluency and Fluency Disorders initiated "annual Leadership Conferences" in 1994. The primary goal of these annual leadership conferences is to bring together clinicians, researchers, and self-help leadership personnel to identify and address current issues in the assessment and treatment of those experiencing a fluency disorder. The Third Annual Leadership Conference held in Monterey, California in 1996 was entitled "Research and Treatment: Bridging the Gap." In retrospect it became apparent that the papers presented at the conference reflected accurately the current and the cutting-edge thinking of leading clinicians and researchers in the profession. The Division's Steering Committee concluded that the inclusion of those papers in a single volume would make a significant addition to the literature in the field.

The Steering Committee of the Division for Fluency and Fluency Disorders is pleased to have participated in the production of this volume. Special thanks are extended to E. Charles Healey and Nan Bernstein Ratner who served not only as editors for this collection of papers but as Conference Co-Chairs for the Third Annual Leadership Conference on "Research and Treatment: Bridging the Gap."

Finally, the Steering Committee wishes to express its appreciation to the authors of these papers, to those who participated in the Third Annual Leadership Conference, and to the many other individuals who made this volume a reality.
