Stuttering is a particularly challenging speech disorder that can have a significant impact on a child’s self-esteem, social interactions, and academic success. Many treatment programs and techniques exist to address stuttering, and clinicians are always looking for new and better ways to help children with this disorder. This journal self-study explores the use of two specific programs – the Lidcombe and Camperdown programs – in modified situations. Articles examine the Lidcombe Program, designed for younger (preschool and some school-age) children, and discuss how clinicians can adapt the program for use in groups and for webcam delivery. A third article explores the factors that may best predict treatment time and long-term outcomes. The Camperdown Program, a treatment more often used for teens, is studied as a telehealth/telepractice application to determine outcomes and child and parent reactions. SLPs working with children who stutter will benefit from a better understanding of how these programs work and how they can be adapted for more resource-efficient treatment.
