Training in self-evaluation of speech performance was combined with a self-managed, performance-contingent maintenance schedule during the treatment of two young adult stutterers. A multiple baseline design was used to investigate the effect of introducing this procedure to a variety of speaking situations. Covert and overt assessment indicated that whenever the self-evaluation training procedure was introduced to the maintenance schedule, it was associated with substantially reduced stuttering which was sustained over a period of at least six months across speaking situations. Some implications of these findings for treatment and self-management research are discussed.
