Ida, Thanks for your comments. Maybe I should have explained this more in the summary. I use this with olderteens and adult who stutter to help them understand that 1)change is a process that takes time, 2) stuttering like many problems is complex so this exercise helps my clients understand that they are working on various aspects of the problem "one step at a time" and 3) most things that we want to change need to be broken down into measureable steps. As a clinician, you may not want to use this type of approach but many adults on my caseload want to change their "speech" quickly and this seems to help them understand the process. Thanks for your comments.
