Moyamoya Disease and Stuttering: A Case Study There have been many examples of individuals acquiring stuttering following the onset of neurogenic disease states (e.g., Helm-Estabrooks, 1999 : Van Borsel,Goethals, & Vanryckeghem, 2004).The range of these disorders includes stroke, motor speech disorders, and traumatic brain injury.

There have been many examples of individuals acquiring stuttering following the onset of neurogenic disease states (e.g., Helm-Estabrooks, 1999 : Van Borsel,Goethals, & Vanryckeghem, 2004).The range of these disorders includes stroke, motor speech disorders, and traumatic brain injury. Itis also documented that there are differences in the neurogenic functioning of individuals that stutter(e.g., Ingham, Fox, Ingham, & Zamarripa, 2000; Watson, Freeman,Devous, Chapman, Finitzo, & Pool,1994). It can be inferred from these studies that impaired cognitive and/or neurogenic functioning can have an impact on the fluency of a speaker. The fluency aspect can be affected by either an impairment of linguistic formulation, linguistic processing, motor planning, motor execution, or a combination of these impairments.
