In this paper we describe our work with the development of a novel computer game supporting speech therapy for children who stutter. We discuss the motivation for our work, the theoretical background, and outline the plans and strategies for the development process. Finally, we describe a preliminary study carried out to evaluate the potential of integrating computer games in speech therapy for children.
