WHAT PARENTS AND TEACHERS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT CHILDREN WHO STUTTER, PART I.
ROBINSON, FRANK B.
THIS IS THE FIRST OF TWO ARTICLES GIVING PARENTS AND TEACHERS PERTINENT INFORMATION ABOUT STUTTERING, EXAMPLES OF KINDS OF STUTTERING BEHAVIOR, AND AN EXPLANATION OF POSSIBLE CAUSAL FACTORS. STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT STUTTERING DOES NOT INDICATE LOW INTELLIGENCE, IS NOT CAUSED BY ORGANICALLY DEFECTIVE SPEECH MECHANISMS, AND APPEARS TO BE CAUSED BY A COMBINATION OF CONDITIONS RATHER THAN ONE FACTOR. STUTTERING SEEMS TO RUN IN FAMILIES AND, AFTER AGE 8 OR 9, IS SELDOM ENTIRELY OUTGROWN. SHYNESS IS MORE OFTEN A RESULT, RATHER THAN A CAUSE OF STUTTERING. ALTHOUGH STUTTERING USUALLY BEGINS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 3 AND 7, IT MAY APPEAR ANYTIME. POSSIBLE CAUSES ARE FAULTY NEUROMUSCULAR DEVELOPMENT, EMOTIONAL PRESSURES, AND DIFFICULTY IN LEARNING LANGUAGE RULES AND LARGE NUMBERS OF WORDS NECESSARY IN EARLY LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "HEARING AND SPEECH NEWS," VOLUME 34, NUMBER 4, JULY 1966. (MY)
