We read with interest Mark Power’s review of research-based stuttering therapies, published in the latest issue of Perspectives on Fluency and Fluency Disorders (Power, 2002). We agree that it is important for researchers and clinicians alike to be concerned about the measurable outcomes of their treatment. Indeed, it seems quite reasonable to expect treatment programs to be supported by evidence published in peer-reviewed articles. It is important that clinicians choose the best available treatments for their clients who stutter, and evidence of efficacy that has been evaluated through the peer review process is one valuable way of determining the potential benefits of a treatment approach. That said, we believe it is also important for clinicians and scientists in the field of fluency disorders to recognize that data and evidence can come from more than one source. Clinicians can best serve their clients when they consider all relevant sources of data.
