Évaluation d'un stage thérapeutique intensif pour des adultes et des adolescents qui bégaient

Abstract : Intensive programs for stuttering therapy have progressed substantially in English-speaking countries, but they remain quite rare in France. The intensive course provided in Chanteloup offers such a treatment, with a three-fold objective: to improve fluency and communication, to change the patient’s perception of his or her stuttering, and to start in-depth work on his or her behavior and feelings, in order to improve the patient's quality of life. This paper mainly aims to assess the efficiency of this program, in the short and medium term (six months). Measures following the baseline model were taken in three fields - fluency, social anxiety and life quality - at four different phases of the treatment: the beginning and end of the intensive week, then two months and six months later, among eleven participants in the 2013 program. The results prove the program to be efficient after six months, in all fields assessed. Many factors of this efficiency are indicated, both in the components and in the format of the program. Even if some epistemological and methodological limits slightly qualify the results, the program's efficiency seems established. Research on such intensive formats should be supported and pursued, particularly in the long term and with more participants.
