J. Scott Yaruss, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, ASHA Fellow, BRS-FD, is an associate professor at the University of Pittsburgh and Co-director of the Stuttering Center of Western Pennsylvania. Yaruss conducts research on the onset and development of stuttering in preschool children, including analysis of linguistic and motoric source factors that contribute to children's production of speech disruptions. Yaruss's research also focuses on the evaluation of treatment outcomes for children, adolescents, and adults who stutter, particularly for those treatment approaches that involve counseling to help clients overcome their negative affective and cognitive reactions to their speaking difficulties. Yaruss teaches classes on stuttering and counseling methods for speech-language pathologists and conducts workshops designed to help clinicians feel more confident in their ability to work with individuals with communication disorders. Yaruss has published more than 70 papers on stuttering and counseling in journals, books, and newsletters, and presented approximately 300 workshops and lectures at local, national, and international meetings.
