About the Lidcombe Program:
The Lidcombe Program is a behavioural treatment for children who stutter who are younger than 6 years. It may be suitable for some older children. The program takes its name from the suburb of Sydney where the Australian Stuttering Research Centre is located, at The University of Sydney.
The treatment is administered by a parent or carer in the child’s everyday environment.
The treatment in the Lidcombe Program is parental verbal contingencies during everyday conversations. Clinical measurement of stuttering is critical in the Lidcombe Program, because it is a focus of all management decisions and the focus of all communication about stuttering between the clinician, parent, and child.
Who can benefit?
This two- day workshop is designed for Speech and Language Therapists who are interested in using the Lidcombe Program. The workshop will include short lectures and group activities, viewing, and discussion of clinic visit videos and case discussions. Each participant will receive a workbook. Certificate of attendance will be issued at the completion of the workshop.
