Abstract

A growing number of researchers have suggested Mindfulness and Acceptance Based Treatments (MABT) for persons who stutter. Although classical cognitive behavioral therapy is commonly applied in stuttering treatment, proponents argue MABT may be particularly well suited to meet the needs of persons who stutter. The proposed benefits of MABT for persons who stutter include decreased avoidance, emotional reactivity, and disfluency. To date, investigations of MABT with persons who stutter have largely focused on the adult population. The following report examines theory and research to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of MABT with children who stutter (CWS).
