Lidcombe program suggestions...

Postby 3kidsandacat » Tue Sep 21, 2010 6:03 pm

My son recently started this program, we have 10-15 mins. of smooth talking time, where I am supposed to praise him when I heard smooth talking. The Speech Pathologist wants me to come up with about 20 different ways to praise him so that it doesnt sound insincere. Im having a lot of trouble with this, Im wondering if anyone here has done this program and might share some suggestions. Thanks! :)

Hi, 3kidsandacat! Sorry about the late reply, first of all. This forum isn't very busy so you should try posting in the Living with mental illness forum as well, as you might get more replies that way.

What kind of praize do they want, I wonder.. Telling him that he'll still be smart and you'll still love him even if he says or does something wrong or telling him that he was good at this or that? It is kind of hard to come up with this stuff.

Not exactly. It's a behavioral program so when he has a stutter free speech I'm supposed to say things like that was smooth talking. I guess it's working on conditioning him to speak w/o the stutter, if that makes sense. I feel kinda stupid saying oh that was smooth talking over and over again. Lmao not to mention I keep getting that Michael Jackson song stuck in my head!! ;)

Look up synonyms for smooth talking in the dictionary! (Is it Smooth Criminal?)

Hi 3kidsandacat,

I realise your post is from quite a while ago so I guess my first question is how did your son go with Lidcombe? How old is he? And what types of praise did you end up coming up with? :) Very interested to hear all about it as I'm a speech path student and hoping to do my stuttering placement next year. I know a lot about Lidcombe in theory but not so much about how it actually transfers into practice! I hope it's working for you and best of luck :)

Sarah
