Efficacité des différents traitements orthophoniques dans la prise en charge du bégaiement précoce : revue de littérature

Abstract : Developmental stuttering is a fluency disorder which involves negative effects on quality of life. Recent research on genetics, neuroimaging does not give us the keys to understand the precise nature of this trouble yet. Factors which predict chronicity or natural recovery are still unknown so an early speech-language therapy is recommended since stuttering onset. Various approaches, direct or indirect, are available and speech-language pathologists can propose several treatments. In order to choose the best method, Evidence-Based Practice seems to be the most efficient way to do it but does research allow this approach? We realized a systematic review from Pubmed and Scopus data bases. Finally, 6 articles from the scientific literature were reviewed, including a retrospective study, two non-randomized trial, one randomized trial, one randomized controlled trial and one meta-analysis published between 2010 and 2019. Within these articles, only two trials compared different treatments: Lidcombe Program vs RESTART-DCM and Lidcombe Program vs Westmead Program. The research in this field is still very limited worldwide. The creditable research evidence is quite weak for the main part of the clinical trials. Nowadays, there is no evidence that a treatment is more effective than another in early stuttering. The Lidcombe Program is the most trialed therapy but clinical trials with a long-term follow up are lacking and would be conducted.
