Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v51 n1 p184-195 Feb 2008
Purpose: This Phase I trial investigated the viability of telehealth delivery of the Camperdown Program with adults who stutter. This program involves speech restructuring. Method: All treatment was conducted remotely with participant-clinician contact occurring by telephone and e-mail. Results: Ten adults completed the program. The group showed an 82% reduction in stuttering frequency immediately after treatment and a 74% reduction 6 months after treatment. However, there was significant individual variation in response to the program. Conclusion: These preliminary data suggest that telehealth Camperdown has the potential to provide efficacious treatment for clients who do not have access to traditional face-to-face treatment.
