Direct Early Intervention with Stuttering: Some Preliminary Data.
Onslow, Mark; And Others
Journal of Speech and Hearing Disorders, v55 n3 p405-16 Aug 1990
Four stutterers, aged 3-5, received treatment based on parent-administered, operant verbal stimulation. Data show that the intervention, coupled with a programed maintenance schedule, reduced stuttering and accompanied increases in syllable output. Findings suggest that cases of early stuttering might be managed effectively by parents, with limited expenditure of clinical time. (Author/JDD)
