Early Stuttering Intervention With the Lidcombe Program
The program was originally aired as part of the “Case Studies in Fluency Disorders” online conference (October 31-November 12, 2012).
In this session, you'll learn about the Lidcombe Program, an intervention strategy to help preschoolers who stutter. The program is delivered by the parent and guided by the clinician, who holds weekly meetings with the parent and child. Using a case study, we'll discuss the Lidcombe Program including assessment, skills and contingencies, follow-up treatments, and steps to ensure that the child maintains his or her fluency. We'll also examine modifications for individuals and for distance therapy, and consider data collection and evidence for the effectiveness of treatment.
You will be able to:
- describe the procedures used in the Lidcombe Program,
- identify ways the Lidcombe Program can produce long-term fluency in preschoolers who stutter, and
- discuss extensive published evidence about this program.
