Video Self-Modeling as a Fluency Recovery Strategy for Adults: Abstract Assignment #3 The present study was conducted using a multiple-baseline across participants’ research design to assess the effectiveness of Visual Self-Modeling (VSM) as a recovery tool for adults who were experiencing relapse or fluency regression after successfully completing a stuttering treatment program. Authors investigated VSM effects on improving stuttering…show more content…
Participants were asked to view their VSM recordings at least two times per week and to keep a viewing-log to record personal reflections and the date. In each week of the baseline and treatment phases, three 5-min speech samples were obtained in the following speaking conditions: (a) a face-to-face conversation with an unfamiliar volunteer, (b) a phone conversation with an unfamiliar volunteer, and (c) a conversation at home or work with a familiar person. Authors calculated %SS and syllables spoken per minute (SPM) from the samples to determine whether reductions in stuttering were achieved. The Self-Efficacy Scale for Adults Who Stutter (SESAS) was used to measure participants’ confidence in entering a variety of beyond clinic talking situations. The Locus of Control of Behavior (LCB) was used to assess the extent to which participants perceived events as being under their personal control.
