Critical Review of Tests for the Assessment of Stuttering

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Stuttering, a condition affecting many individuals in society, is characterized by disruptions in the smooth flow of speech. It usually begins during childhood and involves invol-untary repetitions, prolongations, blocks, avoidance, and accompanying behaviors while speak-ing. Identifying children at risk of stuttering enables intervention services during their early years when the chances for improvement are highest. A speech-language pathologist employs comprehensive procedures to evaluate a child’s stuttering, including its accompanying behaviors and ele-ments. This evaluation is typically extensive and includes interviews, analysis of case histories, and assessments of fluency, speech, language, and communication abilities. This article discusses the different formal tests which are incorporated in the assessment of stuttering.
