For parents who have been trained in delivering the Lidcombe Program for stuttering to their children, it can be hard to think up specific activity ideas. Parents often ask me for a list of activities they can use during the early days of Stage 1 of the treatment at home, and that’s the main reason I’ve pulled this free resource together.
I also wrote this resource to help other speech-language pathologists – including those in rural and remote communities – who don’t see many kids who stutter, and student speech pathologists.
We hope you find it useful. If you have a moment, let us know what you think.
If you’ve already downloaded Volume 1 and need more activities, see our new Volume 2 low-preparation printable activities pack or Lidcombe Program Starter Series for Highly Structured Practice.
