The study examined
the effects of child’s own book technique on the expansion of language
fluency of stutterers in Jos North LGA of Plateau State. The pre-test
post-test experimental design was adopted for this study. The target
sample of the study comprised of 14 teachers and 8 stuttering pupils of
Government Primary School Tudun Wada both in Jos North LGA of Plateau
State. The instruments used for the study consists of; Teachers
Questionnaire (TQ) and the Stuttering Pupils Oral Test (SPOT). Among the
major findings of the study are; the child’s own book technique a great
impact on the language fluency and improving the self-esteem of
stuttering pupils, there is a significant difference between the
posttest mean score of primary school stuttering pupils exposed to
child’s own book technique and those not exposed and finally, the study
revealed that stuttering pupils are very excited when they are being
given the opportunity dictate and own a story book written in their own
words with the help of the teacher. It was however recommended that the
child’s own book technique amongst other fluency shaping techniques
should be used by teachers in expending language fluency and there is
need teachers to be able to assist stuttering pupils in their classroom
through making improvisations such as the helping the child make a
child’s own story book to improve language skills.
