Purpose: This is a response to B. Ryan's (2006) letter to the editor regarding "Intensive Stuttering Modification Therapy: A Multidimensional Assessment of Treatment Outcomes," by M. Blomgren, N. Roy, T. Callister, and R. Merrill (2005). Issues discussed relate to (a) the goals of stuttering modification treatment, (b) appropriate "documentation" of stuttering treatment programs, and (c) dose- response relationships as they pertain to stuttering treatment. A brief tutorial and discussion concerning appropriate use of terminology associated with stuttering treatment outcomes research is provided.
