Known technically as dysphemia, it has sometimes been attributed to an underlying personality disorder. About half of all those who have speech and voice defects suffer from stuttering or stammering (the terms are used interchangeably). In 65% of people who stutter, there is a family history of the disorder, thus suggesting a genetic link. Studies with twins have also indicated that inheritance has an important role in stuttering; comparing pairs in which at least one twin stuttered, it has been found that identical twins were much more likely to be stutterers than fraternal twins (see multiple birth ). Brain scans of stutterers have found higher than normal activity in brain areas that coordinate conscious movement, suggesting that in people who stutter speech occurs less automatically than it does in most people.

Extractions: Is my child stuttering? If so, what should I do? Lisa R. LaSalle, Ph.D., CCC-SLP University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Article published in the February 1999 edition of the School News There are three basic categories of stuttering. The onset of stuttering typically happens between two to five years of age. So, if your toddler or preschooler has only been stuttering for a month or so, and you are questioning whether stuttering is really a problem, your child is in the "early stuttering" category. Your child may be repeating words occasionally when excited or when expressing longer, more complex sentences or ideas (e.g., "I-I-I think um we should share.") You may have known a child who passed through a short phase of stuttering and has since recovered. To help a child overcome early stuttering, listen more to what he says than how he says it. Also, follow these three "S's" in your speech model: Slow, Shorten and Simplify. Aim to sound something like your own version of Fred Rogers on Mr. Rogers Neighborhood

Extractions: BellaOnline's Autism Spectrum Disorders Editor Tics and Stuttering in children with autism When my high functioning son was seven years old he developed a few tics that lasted for several months. First there was the constant eye blinking that made homework a nightmare. The first grade handouts had suggested that homework time should be about forty-five minutes. At my house it averaged two hours. Besides the eye blinking there was the constant erasing of the work, which caused holes in the paper. This whole process exasperated my son who would cry over his homework looking sloppy. A short time after this tic started a vocal tic emerged - stuttering. It took my son a long time to get a sentence out, although he was not too frustrated with talking and stuttering - it was hard to understand what he was saying. This was the year that I had him completely mainstreamed. The previous year he had been in a special day class for mornings and first grade for afternoons. This was a year-round school at the time so when he finished in June I changed him to another track so he would start first grade in July with only a week break. I figured this would keep the momentum going and was the one summer we were not able to get funded for summer camp.

Main Page The two major research programs that form the main focus of the laboratory are designed to examine (a) the sensorimotor organization and control of multiple articulatory and phonatory actions contributing to normal speech production, and (b) the neuromotor and neurophysiological mechanisms underlying stuttering. http://speechlab.coms.uconn.edu/lab/lspmc/
Extractions: The purpose of this website is to launch a new theory of stammering (stuttering) through a pdf file of a paper given by Patricia Sims at the Sixth Oxford University Dysfluency Conference. It is necessary to consider that tension that is within normal limits is the most likely cause of stammering. Tension and anxiety are normal attributes which are essential to us all, and normal levels can be high. This new theory propounds the view that tension or anxiety which falls within the normal range can be strong enough to be implicated in various speech, language and other difficulties. The tension or anxiety does not need to be extreme or obvious. The prevalence of repetitive behaviour in childhood is high and increases, as in adults, with tension and stress. (Just think how repetitive tennis players can become during anxious moments on court!) Any behaviour can become compulsive, just as tics do, and tics are manifest in a variety of ways. Children exhibit repetition in every kind of way - it would be strange indeed if some did not repeat sounds and words. From such excessive repetitions, the stammer (stutter) develops. (See Oxford paper for details.)
The Stuttering Information Center Of Denmark This often results in a lack of knowledge about stuttering, and speech The centre publishes leaflets about specific subjects like stuttering and http://www.davs.dk/om_davs/paa_engelsk/eng_about_davs.htm
Extractions: The Aim of the centre is to improve the prevention and treatment of stuttering in Denmark, and to improve conditions in general for people in Denmark who stutter. To fulfil the aim, the centre means to ensure, that speech therapists, psychologists, stutterers and parents of stuttering children, public social workers, pre-school teachers, school teachers, employers, and others in Denmark will receive up-to-date knowledge about stuttering and the treatment of stuttering. The way to attain this goal is to systematically collect, adapt, develop and pass on knowledge about the causes, development, consequences, prevention and the treatment of stuttering. The reason for establishing the centre was that the treatment of stuttering in Denmark has been decentralised to speech therapists in the municipalities (for children) and the counties (for adults). The speech therapists' tasks are to treat all kinds of speech and language problems, not only stuttering. Some of the speech therapists only see a single, or a very few, stutterers per year - if any. This often results in a lack of knowledge about stuttering, and speech therapists feeling incapable of properly treating persons who stutter.
