Abstract

A case study is reported in which systematic desensitization techniques were used for treatment of stuttering. Following Brutten and Shoemaker's hypothesis that stuttering behavior is a learned disorder predicated upon speech anxieties, desensitization procedures were successfully employed in substantially decreasing this behavior. Limitations to the study are outlined, and suggestions are made regarding further research.
