Abstract In the last decade considerable attention has been generated toward better understanding of assessment and treatment of stuttering at onset. This paper presents an overview of stuttering in early childhood, focusing on current issues in assessment and treatment. The range of treatment options for young stutterers is described and clinicians are presented with some questions to ask before embarking on a treatment plan. Issues related to efficacy of treatment and measurement of outcomes are also discussed.

Au cours des dix dernières années, on a accordé beaucoup d’attention à la compréhension de l’évaluation et du traitement précoces du bégaiement. Ce mémoire donne un aperçu du bégaiement chez les jeunes enfants et met l’accent sur l’actualité en matière d’évaluation et de traitement. Nous y décrivons la gamme d’options de traitement à l’égard des jeunes bègues et présentons aux cliniciens quelques questions qu’ils doivent se poser avant d’amorcer un plan de traitement. On examine également des questions portant sur l’efficacité du traitement et sur la mesure des résultats.
