The following are selected abstracts of recent publications relevant to the identification and clinical management of stuttering in children and adults:
This study provides normative reference data for early stuttering and a rationale for the clinical need to distinguish stuttering from normal disfluency. The averages for each type of stuttering are given for ninety children who stutter (ages 2–5) tested within 6 months of onset and 54 children who do not stutter. The study reveals significant differences in the stuttering-like disfluencies (SLD) of the two groups, but not in the other disfluencies (OD). Characteristics of mild, moderate, and severe stuttering are given. Both the amount and type of stuttering differ significantly between the two groups.
