Schwartz, Howard D.; Conture, Edward G.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v31 n1 p62-71 Mar 1988
Cluster analysis procedures used in a study of 43 stutterers (ages 3-9) identified 14 associated speech and nonspeech behaviors and speech disfluency types, three related indices (sound prolongation, nonspeech behavior, behavioral variety), and five clusters of young stutterers. Behavioral differences reflected differences in the youngsters' reactions and adjustments to their problem. (Author/VW)
