Neiman, Gary S.; Rubin, Rebecca B.
Journal of Communication Disorders, v24 n5-6 p353-66 Oct-Dec 1991
This study examined changes in communication predispositions of 2 clinical populations--13 adult stutterers and 15 foreign dialect students--over 3.5 months of therapy. Results indicated that both groups reduced levels of communication apprehension and increased levels of communication competence. Each group also demonstrated improvements in targeted speech parameters. (Author/JDD)
