The Speech-Language Pathology Situation in Palestine: Focus on Stuttering

Hisham Adam

Abstract


Stuttering is a formidable communication disorder and, despite extensive studies, there is still considerable disagreement and controversy over the possible causes, diagnosis and treatment. The situation of stuttering assessment and treatment in Palestine is far from satisfactory. There are only two available centres in Ramalla and Beit Jala. However, for many people these centres might be difficult to travel to because of the distance and the cost of travel. Competent speech pathologists are not always specialised in stuttering and most of the people have no access to speech pathology clinics.
