· Your Instructor will assign you to a specific neurodevelopmental disorder from the  DSM-5-TR.

· Research your assigned disorder using the Walden Library. Then, develop an organizational scheme for the important information about the disorder.


THE ASSIGNED DISORDER: Childhood-onset fluency disorder (stuttering)

Create a study guide for Childhood-onset fluency disorder (stuttering). Your study guide should be in the form of an outline with references, and you should incorporate visual elements such as concept maps, charts, diagrams, images, color coding, mnemonics, and/or flashcards. Be creative! It should not be in the format of an APA paper. Your guide should be informed by the  DSM-5-TR but also supported by at least three other scholarly resources.

Areas of importance you should address, but are not limited to, are:

· Signs and symptoms according to the  DSM-5-TR

· Differential diagnoses

· Incidence

· Development and course

· Prognosis

· Considerations related to culture, gender, age

· Pharmacological treatments, including any side effects

· Nonpharmacological treatments

· Diagnostics and labs

· Comorbidities

· Legal and ethical considerations

· Pertinent patient education considerations
