Assessment
. An assessment is conducted to determine the appropriate treatment program. All individualized programs involve the following three components.

Speech Modification
. For a person to gain control of stuttering, something must be done differently during the act of talking. The sequence is to understand the process of normal and abnormal communication, to understand exactly what happens during stuttering, and to develop procedures for gaining control of the speech mechanism during talking. Procedures vary with the type of stuttering and the goals of the person who stutters.

Clinical Procedures

Social Skills Training. Listening, turn taking, problem solving, etc. are often more important in communication effectiveness than improving speech skills.

Families whose children have been successful in managing their stuttering have credited the use of appropriate social skills and problem solving as the key ingredients to their success, even more so than speech change.

Transfer. Transfer is the ability to use what is learned in the clinical situation in the normal speaking environment. Problem solving procedures are developed to manage the speaking situation and to control the moment of stuttering.
