Hello, I’m a first year grad student studying Communication Sciences and Disorders. In class, I am learning about differing trains of thought and practice in regards to therapy, which is presented as being on a continuum between stuttering modification and fluency shaping. It seems there has been a gradual paradigm shift away from pure clinical observation and treatment of overt stuttering behaviors towards therapy that acknowledges the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of people who stutter, who are active in their own therapy and part of a dynamic team of family members and professionals. Given this paradigm shift, I was wondering if there has been any scientific research on stuttering therapy using alternative, complementary, or integrative pathways?
