What is the Lidcombe Program for Early Childhood Stuttering?
The Lidcombe Program is a highly successful evidenced based behavioral treatment program that was designed for young children who stutter and their families. The objective of this program is to try and eliminate stuttering in young children in a fun, systematic and structured manner. Therapy is provided to the child by a Lidcombe Certified speech pathologist with over 20 years experience in stuttering/fluency therapy. Parents are taught to work with their children daily to decrease stuttering.
This program is ideal for children ages 3 to 6 1/2. In order for children to improve fluency at this age parents must use a structured approach and be involved daily. It is important to address stuttering early and NOT to wait.
