I acknowledge the time that Professor Ryan took to submit a letter to Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools (LSHSS) critiquing the set of articles I guest edited in the January 2004 issue for a clinical forum titled, “What Child Language Research May Contribute to the Understanding and Treatment of Stuttering.” After several careful readings of his letter (Ryan, 2006), I believe that his main point was that we, and apparently most grievously I, did not present evidence-based practice data to back up what he perceived as my claims concerning how children who stutter should be treated. Professor Ryan and the readers of LSHSS will note that I recently responded, along with my LSHSS clinical forum co-authors Hall and Leahy, to a letter written by Ingham (Ingham, 2005) that also criticized the premise and the articles included in that clinical forum (Weiss, Hall, & Leahy, 2005). There does not appear to be anything new to address in Ryan’s letter that was not already addressed in our response to Ingham. Despite this, and my unwillingness to belabor the readership of LSHSS, I will respond briefly to Ryan’s concerns.
