SUMMARY

Treatment of stuttering in children in Denmark is carried out in municipally based treatment sites within the school administrations, where Speech Language Pathologists are working with all kinds of speech and language impediments; none are working exclusively with stuttering. This paper reports the preliminary results of a project with the aim of developing models to enable small treatment sites to render a standing, consistent service of adequate quality to children who stutter. An important aspect of the project is to work on speech language therapists becoming familiar working with organizational matters in order to get the services explicitly embedded within the organization.
