Stuttering Treatment in Spanish

For the Spanish-speakers out there, how would you describe “smooth ” and “bumpy” speech to a child and parent in Spanish when working with fluency disorders?

Here is a link for some materials on the Stuttering Foundation website: Spanish Translated Materials

But please share your thoughts.

    Hi Scott,

    I’ve been looking for an answer to this question myself for a while. Apparently, there is no literal translation for “bumpy” in Spanish. As a native Spanish speaker, the translations that are out there don’t make any sense to me. So, for now I’m using “habla fluida” and “habla picada” to use a reference to water. I think it’s easy for my students to understand using visuals of a boat in choppy water and calm water.

      Hi Karina,
      Thanks for these ideas. I also added a link to some translated materials on the National Stuttering Foundation website.
      Best,
      Scott
