Writing goals with the 3Es

The intent of 3Es model is to help clinicians and their clients identify values and outcome-based aspects of the communication experience, the IRL stuff. We want  to bridge the gap between a teenager who says “I want to be able to talk with my friends” and the SLP who writes “Student will produce 10-12 word sentences in structured conversation with 80% accuracy,” to use a real-life example. 

Writing non-behavioral goals can be challenging, especially in data-driven work settings. Below are some templates and tools to help clinicians develop evidence-based SMART goals for stuttering therapy. 

Informed client collaboration is a cornerstone value of the 3Es (and evidence-based practice as a whole!). Our goal-setting lesson plan includes a step-by-step outline that guides SLPs and clients through a collaborative, experience-based goal-setting exercise.
