Use this dice to make practicing fluency modification strategies fun! Here are some brief definitions of each strategy:
1. Pullout: when caught in a moment of stutter, produce a pullout by easing out of the stuttering event. the word must then be produced slowly and in a controlled manner as when cancelling a moment of stutter.
2. Pause: break up a sentence into smaller units to help breathing and applying other strategies mid-response.
3. Stretch: slightly stretch the beginning sound to ease into production.
4. Light contact: the child is taught to "touch" the articulators together lightly and softly. light contacts are used on sounds that involve more contact, such as plosives and labials.
5. Easy onset: begin speech a little slower, with less tightness and slightly softer. once fluent speech is achieved at the word level, the length and complexity is increased. carryover and self-monitoring are also taught.
6. Cancellation: after a stuttering event has occured, the child waits several seconds and then produces the word again in an easier manner that is more slow and controlled.
