The state of the art in non-pharmacological interventions for developmental stuttering. Part 2: qualitative evidence synthesis of views and experiences

A range of interventions has been developed to treat stuttering in recent years. The effectiveness of these interventions has largely been assessed in studies focusing on the impact of specific types of therapy on patient outcomes. Relatively little is known about the factors that influence how the delivery and impact of different types of intervention may be experienced from the perspective of people who deliver as well as those who receive interventions. This synthesis of qualitative findings from published papers provides evidence that suggests a client-centered and individually tailored approach enhances the likelihood of successful intervention outcomes through attention to emotional, situational and practical needs.
