Abstract The influence of two parameters of self-initiated time-out from speaking were investigated with 33 adolescent and adult stutterers. Subjects were assigned at random to one ofthree conditions which compared experimenter-administered time-out of fixed duration, experimenter-administered time-out of duration determined by the subject, and self-initiated time-out of fixed duration. When given the opportunity to determine time-out duration, subjects chose a relatively brief period. In addition, when given responsibility for self-initiating time-out contingent on stuttering, subjects were significantly less reliable than was the experimenter in administering the procedure. Nevertheless, significant improvements in fluency were observed during all three time-out conditions, and the improvements were comparable across the three conditions.
