Control of Children's Stuttering with Response-Contingent Time-Out: Behavioral, Perceptual, and Acoustic Data.
Onslow, Mark; And Others
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v40 n1 p121-33 Feb 1997
A time-out from speaking contingency was evaluated in the treatment of stuttering in three school-age children. A red light time-out signal appeared for five seconds when the child stuttered. Two of the children responded to time-out with clear reductions in stuttering. Listeners did not detect any differences between the perceptually stutter-free speech of baseline conditions and that of time-out conditions. (Author/DB)
