Abstract

The purpose of this article is to report on the combined application of two treatment approaches that have proven effective in past case studies, namely, stimulus fading and self-modeling. More specifically, each successful stage of the stimulus fading procedure was videotaped and shown to the electively mute child prior to each subsequent stage of fading treatment. A 6-year, 4-month-old Filipino female who had not spoken in 1 1/2 years of school, began speaking in clinic and school settings after seven clinical sessions involving the fading and modeling procedure and four school consultation visits.
