Stutterers' Practices: Folk Remedies and Therapeutic Intervention.
Rochford, E. Burke, Jr.
Journal of Communication Disorders, v16 n5 p373-84 Sep 1983
The author reviews ways in which stutterers manage their interaction in terms of speech practices, management strategies (such as avoiding troublesome situations, rehearsing social activities), and conversational practices (including managing conversation topics and using starters to initiate utterances). The value of such "folk remedies" in speech therapy is noted. (CL)
