Hearne et al. (2008) conducted a Phase I trial with three adolescents aged 13, 14 and 16 years. In this trial, no significant adaptations were made to accommodate the younger population. The oldest of the three children responded very well, reducing his stuttering to below 1% and maintaining this result for at least 12 months. However, the younger two children did not perform as well.

This suggested that adults who stuttered were likely to benefit most from using individualised features of speech restructuring rather than a predetermined, standardised speech pattern.
