I work for a B-3 agency, and was asked by a colleague to do a language sample for fluency for a child who turns 3 next week that was recently taken into our program, as a part of a transition plan for the school district... There is a positive family history of stuttering (Dad, grandma and uncle stutter), the child has been demonstrating these dysfluencies for over a year. He demonstrated 19 dysfluencies out of 100 words, prolongations, repetitions, hard articulatory contacts, facial grimmacing...The school district is fighting taking the child on for speech services. 19/100 words is not typical, right?! Intervention at this point would be warranted, right?
