Attention to evidence-based treatment in the field of speech-language pathology was rather limited until the 1990s. In the past decade, researchers have reported quite extensively on the effectiveness and efficacy of speech and language treatments. As it relates to fluency disorders, the attention of clinicians has, in recent years, been directed toward evidence-based treatment by means of systematic reviews, tutorials and meta-analysis (Bernstein Ratner, 2005; Bothe, Davidow, Bramlett, Franic, & Ingham, 2006; Bothe, Davidow, Bramlett, & Ingham, 2006; Herder, Howard, Nye, & Vanryckeghem, 2006; Ingham & Cordes, 1997; among others). However, little research has been conducted to investigate the efficacy of assessment procedures in relation to differential diagnosis, treatment targets and therapy outcome.
