Abstract. Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) working in private practice are required to translate clinical trial treatment protocols to implement evidence-based practice. Many Australian paediatric private practices are generalist clinics rather than specialist fluency clinics and SLPs working in this context have varying levels of training, skills and experience working with children who stutter. While most participants in this study reported using the evidence-based Lidcombe Program, almost a third were not formally trained to do so and their practices, perceptions and confidence to deliver this treatment varied considerably. Barriers and facilitators of treatment success are explored and suggestions for future translational research with this clinical population are presented.
