However, most speech pathologists are not trained to treat stuttering. Ask how much training and experience the speech pathologist has.

Bill Parry's Stuttering Links
Stuttering (sometimes called "stammering") is a specific kind of disfluency, in which the flow of speech tends to be involuntarily disrupted by forceful closures of the mouth or larynx, by repetitions or prolongations of sounds and syllables, or by hesitations or delays in making voiced sounds. Stuttering generally involves an excessive amount of effort, force, and struggle in the attempt to speak. It also may be accompanied by a variety of behaviors intended to avoid, postpone, or hide the blocks.
Stuttering, while not the worst of handicaps, certainly can be one of the most frustrating. Unlike other disabilities, stuttering has the mystifying and maddening habit of coming and going. Even if you stutter badly, chances are that you will be perfectly fluent when singing, talking in unison with other people, and in certain speaking situations. You may do a great job acting out a role on stage, but not be able to say your name when asked. You may begin telling a joke with perfect fluency, but not be able to deliver the punch line. You may have long stretches of fluency when it really doesn't matter. Then, just when the words are most important, stuttering jumps out of the closet and pins your speech to the ground.
This website is devoted to exploring the puzzle of stuttering, the factors that may cause or perpetuate it, and what we might do to control or alleviate it through therapy or self help. We are also interested in encouraging self-esteem and acceptance for persons who stutter, fighting discrimination, and educating the public about this often misunderstood condition.

What is Stuttering
For additional information, please download the NEW Speakeasy Brochure (PDF format) Stuttering is a communication difficulty in which the person who stutters is unable to verbally communicate when they wish to in the way in which they want to. (Stuttering, stammering and dysfluency all refer to the same condition.) Stuttering is a complex set of behaviours that may involve repeating sounds, syllables or words, prolonging sounds, blocking or hesitating, and avoiding or substituting words. There may be other secondary behaviours associated with stuttering such as excessive muscle tension in the face, neck, back or stomach. Distortion of the face can occur with grimacing, frowning, etc. There may be unusual movements of the head or limbs. There are as many different patterns of dysfluent behaviour as there are people who stutter. Stuttering, especially in adults, can be accompanied by emotional embarrassment, distress and frustration. People who stutter often avoid speaking situations, because of the associated fears and distress, e.g. talking on the telephone. People who stutter may avoid choosing a career in which they believe their stuttering will become obvious or be a handicap. Stuttering usually starts in childhood between the ages of two and five. About 5 per cent of children under the age of five will experience dysfluent speech while learning to talk and about a quarter of them develop chronic stuttering. Stuttering is more common in boys than in girls. The ratio is about 3:1 or 4:1.

Irvine, California center offering intensive therapy for adults and children who stutter, as well as continuing education for speech pathologists.
The SpeechEasy is the smallest, most advanced, new device for the problem of stuttering. It is small enough to fit completely in your ear canal, yet it uses an advanced microprocessor that has all the power found in a computer. The SpeechEasy is digitally programmable with special computer software for a wide range of settings of Delayed Auditory Feedback (DAF) and Frequency Altered Feedback (FAF). SpeechEasy fluency devices are based on a natural phenomenon called the "choral effect." The "choral effect" occurs when people who stutter speak or sing in unison with others and their stuttering is dramatically reduced or even eliminated. SpeechEasy Stuttering Devices This one-year program for Intensive Stuttering Therapy for Adults and Teenagers begins with an intensive one-week in the clinic. A desk model of the Delayed Auditory Feedback (DAF) machine is used to train skills that replace stuttered speech with stutter-free speech. After speech behaviors can be produced in the clinic for short periods of time without using the DAF, the rest of the program is completed at home by assigning daily speaking tasks that start with easy situations and gradually move to harder ones and longer periods of speaking.

Many toddlers and preschool age children stutter as they are learning to talk, and although many parents worry about it, most of these children will grow out of stuttering and will have normal speech as they get older. Since most of these children don't stutter as adults, this normal stage of speech development is usually referred to as psuedostuttering or as a normal dysfluency As children learn to talk, they may repeat certain sounds, stumble on or mispronounce words, hesitate between words, substitute sounds for each other, and be unable to say some sounds. Children with a normal dysfluency usually have brief repetitions of some sounds and syllables or short words. The stuttering usually comes and goes and is most noticeable when your child is excited, stressed or overly tired, but the child usually doesn't notice or have any reaction to his behavior.

"Traditionally, stuttering is thought of as a problem with how someone speaks, and little attention has been given to the complex interactions between neurological systems that underlie speaking," says Christine Weber-Fox , an assistant professor of speech sciences who is interested in the brain's involvement in language processing. "We have found differences in adults who stutter, compared to those who don't, in how the brain processes information when people are thinking about language but not speaking. For example, there was a significant delay in response time when subjects were given a complex language task. We also found that in people who stutter, certain areas of the brain are more active when processing some language tasks." silent rhyming task

Weber-Fox, a cognitive neuroscientist, teamed with Anne Smith , a professor of speech science who studies the neurophysiological bases of speech production, to study language and speech production systems. A series of studies were conducted to measure semantic (word meaning in sentence processing), grammatical and phonological (sounds of the language, such as rhyming) aspects of language. In each study, the brain activity of adults who stutter and don't stutter were measured when they responded silently, by pressing a button, to questions regarding sentence meaning, grammar or sentence structure, and rhyming. This is believed to be the first time brain electrical activity has been studied in a series of language tasks in people who stutter to determine whether their brains function differently even when there are no overt speaking demands.
