Objective: Stuttering is a complex communication and developmental speech disorder wherein forward flow of speech is interrupted by sound repetitions, words, prolongation of sounds and psychological and social effects. Most of the therapeutic approaches may focus more on cognitive, behavioral or psychological therapy. The aim of this study was to innovate the novel stuttering therapy procedure and to evaluate its efficiency in adults who stutters in accomplishing spontaneous fluent speech.

Methods: The current proposal was designed as the pilot study and the participants were selected based on 3 treatment groups i.e., (i) speech-hand synchronization (SHS) (ii) Camperdown programme (CP) and (iii) control group CG). The equal number (n=10) of participants were selected in all the 3 groups and treatment sessions was carried out for 50 minutes per day for 10 weeks (5 days/week).

Results: The stuttering severity instrument-4 was used to measure the scores of pre and post treatment. The overall, assessment of the speakers’ experience of stuttering, locus of control of behavior and speech satisfaction rating scale.

Conclusion: The results of the current study conclude non-significant alterations and huge similar outcomes within the SHS and CP groups. This could be due to difference in the superior programme between SHS and CP, in terms of fluency, participants quality of life and satisfaction and internal locus of control.
