Here is a little thing to try for a 3–4 year old who refuses to imitate easy stutterings or disfluencies:
Draw or make some nonsense figures (e.g., friendly aliens) and build a story about them. One alien might be named “Mobe”; another might be named “M-mo-mobe” or Mmmmmoooobe.” By talking about them in the conversation, the youngster has lots of opportunity to practice easy repetitions and/or prolongations.
Here are some things that recently struck me as interesting
Check out the Web site http://www.mankato.msus.edu/dept/comdis/kuster/therapypics/pictures.html for Michelle and Judy’s project for speech clinicians to use with some children in elementary school to help them educate their classmates and parents about stuttering.
