TSS explores what stuttering is from a medical perspective and compares this with social science research on stuttering. Learners can test their understanding of this content through several short quizzes. The second unit features vignettes (short interactive, documentary videos) that look at the lived experiences of people who stutter in social contexts. The third and final unit is an H5P branching scenario/interactive story that introduces students to a mock clinical assessment in which learners can take on the role of a speech language pathologist assessing a client who stutters, and vice-versa. This Theory of Mind activity provides an opportunity for learners to consider the emotions, beliefs, and communicative practices of both participants in a clinical encounter.
