Purpose This commentary is a response to a Letter to the Editor: Yaruss, Coleman, and Hammer (2006) : An Exemplar of Non-Evidence Based Practice in Stuttering Treatment.

Method Our commentary addresses issues raised in the Letter to the Editor and clarifies several apparent misunderstandings, including those related to evidence-based practice (EBP).

Conclusion This commentary further supports the rationale for continuing to evaluate a family-focused treatment protocol for young children who stutter. It also reflects the need to educate clinicians and researchers on the utilization of EBP.
