Language in Children Who Stutter

A connection between language and stuttering in young children is intuitive. As noted by Yairi (1983) and others (e.g., Ratner, 1997), stuttering first appears in children between ages 2 and 4 years, during a time of rapid expansion in expressive and receptive language ability. Moreover, the repetitions and prolongations that characterize stuttering are observed as the child uses sounds to form words and words to form phrases and sentences. The apparent link between domains has given rise to theoretical accounts of stuttering that emphasize linguistic variables. For example, one working account of stuttering suggests that underlying difficulties with phonological encoding, difficulties that self-correct prior to actual language production but that slow language processing, yield disfluencies (Postma and Kolk, 1993). Linguistic factors are implicated in several other theoretical accounts of stuttering as well (Wingate, 1988 Perkins, Kent, and Curlee, 1991). Despite the intuitive appeal...

Linguistic Influences on Stuttering

There is ample evidence that stuttering events are influenced by linguistic variables. Brown (1945) was perhaps the first researcher to suggest linguistic influences on stuttering events with his groundbreaking report of apparent influences of a word's grammatical form class (i.e., content versus function word) on stuttering loci in adults who stuttered. In brief, Brown reported that adults who stuttered were significantly more likely to be disfluent on content words (e.g., nouns and verbs) than on function words (e.g., prepositions and pronouns). Since Brown's seminal work, researchers have continually refined analyses in the study of linguistic influences on stuttering. We now know, for example, that young children are generally more likely to stutter on sentences of greater grammatical complexity than on sentences of less grammatical complexity (Logan and Conture, 1995 Yaruss, 1999). Furthermore, the content-function variable appears not to be the most relevant influence on...

Speech Disfluency and Stuttering in Children

Childhood stuttering (also called developmental stuttering) is a communication disorder that is generally characterized by interruptions, or speech disfluencies, in the smooth forward flow of speech. Speech disfluencies can take many forms, and not all are considered to be atypical. Disfluencies such as interjections ( um , er ), phrase repetitions (''I want I want that ), and revisions ( I want I need that ), which are relatively common in the speech of normally developing children, represent normal aspects of the speaking process. These disfluencies arise when a speaker experiences an error in language formulation or speech production or needs more time to prepare a message. Other types of dis-fluencies, which occur relatively infrequently in the speech of normally developing children, may be indicative of a developing stuttering disorder. These dis-fluencies, often called atypical disfluencies, stuttered disfluencies, or stutter-like disfluencies, include whole-word repetitions (...

Language Ability and Stuttering in Young Children

The scholarly literature reveals a relatively longstanding view of the child who stutters as more likely to have language learning difficulties or impairments than typically developing peers. Through analysis of spontaneous language sample data, a group of scholars has empirically evaluated the expressive language abilities of a large cohort of young children who stutter (Watkins and Yairi, 1997 Watkins, Yairi, and Ambrose, 1999). The Illinois Stuttering Research Project has prospec-tively tracked a group of young children who stutter, beginning as near stuttering onset as possible and continuing longitudinally for a number of years to monitor persistence in versus recovery from stuttering. This work has focused on expressive language abilities, comparing the performance of young children who stutter with normative expectations on a range of language sample measures, such as mean length of utterance (MLU, a general index of grammatical ability), number of different words (NDW, a...

Stuttering

Stuttering is a developmental disorder of communication that affects approximately 5 of children born in the United States and Western Europe. Children are at highest risk for beginning to stutter between their second and fourth birthdays. The risk decreases gradually thereafter, with few onsets occurring after 9 or 10 years of age (Andrews and Harris, 1964). The percentage of older children, adolescents, and adults who stutter is much lower, about 0.5 -1.0 (Andrews, 1984 Blood-stein, 1995), and the discrepancy between the percentage of children affected (i.e., incidence) and the percentage of older children and adults who stutter (i.e., prevalence) indicates that 75 -90 of the children who begin to stutter stop. Complete, untreated remissions of stuttering are most likely to occur within 2 years of onset (Andrews and Harris, 1964 Yairi and Ambrose, 1999 Mansson, 2000), with decreasing frequency after that. Most of the data on the epidemiology of stuttering have been obtained from...

Psychosocial Problems Associated with Communicative Disorders

Individuals who study communicative disorders have long been interested in the psychosocial difficulties associated with these problems. This interest has taken different faces over the years as researchers and clinicians have focused on various aspects of the relationship between communicative impairment and psychological and social difficulties. For example, relatively early in the development of the profession of speech-language pathology, some investigators approached specific communicative disorders, such as stuttering, as manifestations of underlying psychological dysfunction (e.g., Travis, 1957). More recent approaches have moved away from considering psychiatric dysfunction as the basis for most speech and language impairment (an exception is alexithymia). Despite this reorientation, there is still considerable interest in the psychosocial aspects of communicative disorders. The literature is both extensive and wide-ranging, and much of it focuses on specific types of...

The intergenic regions of rhabdoviruses are highly conserved both among genes of a virus species and between members of the virus family (Table 2). Similarly to VSV intragenic sequences, plant rhabdovirus intergenic regions are comprised of an AT-rich region (region I), thought to be the intracellular polyadenylation signal or stutter sequence, followed by a short, variable, non-

The foundation offers extensive educational programs for professionals and provides free online resources, services, and support to those who stutter and their families, as well as support for research into the causes of stuttering.

Speech Disorders in Children Behavioral Approaches to Remediation

Speech disorders in children include articulation and phonological disorders, stuttering, cluttering, developmental apraxia of speech, and a variety of disorders associated with organic conditions such as brain injury (including cerebral palsy), cleft palate, and genetic syndromes. Despite obvious linguistic influences on the analysis, classification, and theoretical understanding of speech disorders in children, most current treatment methods use behavioral techniques. The effectiveness of behavioral treatment techniques in remediating speech disorders in children has been well documented (Onslow, 1993 Bernthal and Bankson, 1998 Hegde, 1998, 2001 Pena-Brooks and Hegde, 2000). Behavioral techniques that apply to all speech discords and indeed to most disorders of communication include positive reinforcement and reinforcement schedules, negative reinforcement, instructions, demonstrations, modeling, shaping, prompting, fading, corrective feedback to reduce undesirable responses, and...

Speech Disorders in Adults Psychogenic

Purely psychogenic speech disorders, the subject of this chapter, are rare in clinical practice. With psycho-genic speech disorders, the communication breakdown stems from a conversion disorder. Conversion disorders are included within a larger family of psychiatric disorders, somatoform illnesses. These tend to be associated with pathologic beliefs and attitudes on the part of the patient that results in somatic symptoms. The American Psychiatric Association (1987) defines a conversion disorder as an alteration or loss of physical functioning that suggests a physical disorder, that actually represents an expression of a psychological conflict or need. An example might be a woman who suddenly loses her voice because she cannot face the psychological conflict of a spouse's affair. Here the symptom (voice loss) constitutes a lesser threat to her psychological equilibrium than confronting the husband with his infidelity. A partial list of psychogenic speech disorders includes partial...

Speech Disorders in Children A Psycholinguistic Perspective

Psycholinguistic Model Repetition

In a medical perspective, speech and language problems are classified according to clinical entity. Commonly used labels include dyspraxia, dysarthria, and stuttering. Causes of speech difficulties can be identified (e.g., cleft palate, hearing loss, neurological impairment) or an associated medical condition is known (e.g., autism, learning difficulties, Down syndrome).

Organomercury and autism

Autism is a distressing condition and five children in every 10000 are afflicted with it, and of these the ratio of 4 boys to 1 girl.* What causes a seemingly normal baby to develop autism is still unknown, but many in the USA believe that mercury is the cause. In the late 1990s it was accused of causing attention deficit syndrome, stammering, and especially autism. Some thought that thimerosal was to blame. This is a mercury-containing antibacterial agent which was added to vaccines to preserve them. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention first reported a link between thimerosal and mental development in children after carrying out an epi-demiological study, although they later admitted that their analysis was flawed. Nevertheless, as a result of a Congressional report many US vaccines phased out its use from 2000 onwards and they no longer contain this preservative. Japan and most countries in Western Europe have done likewise.

The central dogma of human neuropsychology

In this view, the asymmetric control of the organs of speech is more important than the uneven hemispheric control of the hands, i.e., handedness - and indeed a much greater proportion of people shows unilateral left hemispheric control for speech (99 of right-handers and 70 of left-handers) than for handedness (90 of the general population) (Annett 1985). Moreover, brain-imaging studies have shown abnormal bilateral activation of the motor cortex during stuttering in chronic stutterers, and disappearance of the bilateral hemispheric activation with trained remission of the stuttering. In a PET study by Fox et al. (1996), control subjects showed the normal pattern of left hemispheric activation in both auditory and motor cortex during speech, whereas stutterers showed abnormal right hemisphere activation (Figure 2-1). They concluded that stuttering induced widespread overactivations of the motor system in both cerebrum and cerebellum, with right cerebral dominance. Figure 2-1. In a...

Word Association Test

Certahi types of reactions indicate that the sthnulus word has touched a complex. Critical responses include restricted breathing, changes in the electrical conductivity of the skhi, delayed reactions, multiple responses, disregard of instructions, inability to pronounce a common word, failure to respond, and inconsistency on test-retest. Other significant responses include blushing, stammering, laughing, coughing, sighing, clearing the throat, cryhig, excessive body movement, and repetition of the sthnulus word. Any one or combination of these responses might hidicate that a complex has been reached (Jung, 1935 1968 Jung & Riklhi, 1904 1973).

Sturge Weber syndrome

Stuttering A communication disorder in which the flow of speech is broken by repetitions, prolongations, or abnormal stoppages of sounds and syllables. There may also be unusual facial and body movements associated with the effort to speak. Stuttering affects more than three million Americans, and four times as many boys as girls. About 20 percent of all children go through a stage of development during which they encounter stuttering problems severe enough to be a concern to their parents. Despite decades of research, scientists still are not sure what causes stuttering, although a variety of factors contribute to its development, including genetics, neurophysiology, child development, and family dynamics. Stuttering may occur when a combination of factors occur and may have different causes in different people. Experts believe that what causes stuttering is not the same thing as the reasons for the problem to continue or get worse. Children and adults who stutter are no more likely...

Mercury

The phrase 'mad as a hatter' is in common English usage but its origin is not so well known. It is derived from the workers who used mercury in the preparation of felt for hats. Beaver and rabbit fur, which were used to make the felt hats, were treated with mercuric nitrate, a mercury salt, in order to matt the fur together, a process called carroting. After this process, the fur would be heated and the workers inevitably became exposed to mercury vapour. The symptoms developed by the workers became well characterized from observations of groups of workers in the industry. These consisted of tremors ('hatter's shakes'), mental disturbances ('mercury madness'), a jerky walk, stammering speech, and apparent pathological shyness.

Verbal Courtship

Much of human courtship is verbal courtship boy meets girl usually means boy and girl talk. At every stage of courtship, language is displayed, and language is subject to mate choice. Teenagers agonize over the words they will use when they telephone someone to ask for a date. Stuttering, sudden changes in voice pitch, awkward grammar, poor word choice, and uninteresting content are usually considered such fatal errors by their perpetrators that they often hang up in shame, assuming that they will remain sexual failures forever. Things are not so different a little later in life. Adults in singles bars nervously rehearse their pickup lines, and mentally outline their conversational gambits.

Molecular Misreading

Deletions in the vasopressin gene, resulting in a lack of functional vasopressin protein. As the animals age, a proportion of the hypothalamic cells are seen to contain functional vasopressin mRNA and protein19-20. This apparent 'correction' of the single nucleotide deletion, was found to occur by the incorporation of a dinu-cleotide deletion (in this case AGA) into a specific sequence repeat (a 'GAGAG motif') of a fraction of the mutant vasopressin mRNAs, during or after transcription, hence the term 'molecular misreading'. The precise mechanism by which the misreading event occurs is not known, but is speculated to involve the co-tran-scriptional slippage or stuttering of RNA polymerase21.
