This article presents an alternative service delivery model for treating schoolchildren who stutter. Weekly treatment sessions with groups of students after the school day, along with monthly meetings with their parents, focused both on changing attitudes about stuttering and on controlling stuttering behaviors. Results supported the efficacy of a group treatment program with a parent involved. The significance of changing attitudes in both students and their parents is discussed.
