Brief treatments for stuttering would be available if they could produce long term benefits. Six clients were given training in a variant of an airflow technique. Treatment required eight hours of clinician time per client. Significant improvement occurred after four days of treatment, but relapse was considerable and by the end of the year speech was unimproved in respect to pretreatment scores. Presently, proven effective treatments require 30 hours of clinician time per client and shorter treatments do not appear to produce comparable results.
