The current study aimed to build a training program for children who suffer from fluency disorders in the age group (3-6) years in order to improve their fluency. The study sample consisted of (10) children suffering from fluency disorder (stuttering) in the early developmental stage. To achieve the objectives of the study, the researchers used the Stuttering Severity Instrument in its fourth version (SSI-4). The One Single Subject Design approach was used with pre and post measurement. In addition, the researchers built a training program aimed to enhance fluency, which has validity indications. The program was applied for a period of (6) months, with (48) training sessions, the duration of each session (30) minutes. The results of the study showed a clear improvement in the field of fluency for the ten children with fluency disorder. Among the most important recommendations that resulted from this study are the application of the training program on a larger sample and the need to conduct studies on linguistic and verbal development in children.
