Hi Emily, Thanks for the comment and kind words. I have not used this procedure directly with children, but I'm sure you could find ways to adapt it to them. For a few years, we ran a summer camp for children who stuttered, but have not continued it due to difficulty in getting parents to commit to taking a full week to have their children come. Vacation, sports, etc. always seemed to be a problem. I have a poster session presented by two colleagues, Melinda Kayira and Susan Woods, and myself at the West Virginia Speech-Language-Hearing Association Convention in 2007. I'd be happy to send that to you off line if you'd like to write to me at <>. It describes a group experience for children and their parents with a focus primarily on desensitization and insight with a secondary focus on speech skills. Ken
