Conture, Edward G.; Kelly, Ellen M.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v34 n5 p1041-56 Oct 1991
This study assessed the nonspeech behaviors associated with young stutterers (n=30, mean age 54 months) and normally fluent children's comparable fluent utterances. Findings suggested that children can be classified as stutterers on the basis of their nonspeech behaviors, which may reflect cognitive, emotional, linguistic, and physical events associated with stuttering.
