We thank Bothe Marcotte & Santus (2015)  for their clinical tutorial in response to our case vignette (Coleman, Miller, & Weidner, 2015). The more treatment approaches clinicians can read about, the more options they will have for their clients. After many years of debating the components of evidence-based practice (EBP; Coleman, Yaruss, & Hammer, 2007; Yaruss, Coleman, & Quesal, 2012), we are encouraged to see that client and family values are finally being considered as an integral part of EBP, and not ignored in favor of only existing research evidence. Furthermore, we are proud that our article encouraged Bothe Marcotte & Santus to submit their own work in this forum. Their response described the treatment of three widely differing case vignettes, while endorsing EBP through the implementation of one documented approach. We are pleased that this exchange has stimulated professional discussion on what we feel to be one of the most important, yet contested, topics in stuttering treatment: improved client outcomes.
