The state of the art in non-pharmacological interventions for developmental stuttering. Part 1: a systematic review of effectiveness

The growing range of available treatment options for people who stutter presents a challenge to access the best available treatment evidence to guide for providing the most appropriate interventions. While a number of reviews of interventions for specific populations or a specific type of intervention have been carried out, a broad-based systematic review across all forms of intervention for adults and children was needed to provide evidence to underpin future guidelines, inform the implementation of effective treatments and identify future research priorities.
