The objective of this study was to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of the research relating to behavioral stuttering treatment. Detailed descriptions of the information retrieval, inclusion criteria, study coding, and effect size computations are provided. A total of 375 citations were identified for potential inclusion using electronic and hand-search strategies. Of the 12 included studies, six reported outcomes for treated versus nontreated participants, yielding a significant effect size of 0.91. The remaining six studies compared the effectiveness of two different treatments and yielded a nonsignificant effect size of 0.21. These data support the claim that intervention for stuttering results in an overall positive effect. Addition- ally, the data show that no one treatment approach for stuttering demonstrates significantly greater effects over another treatment approach.
