Genetic Aspects of Early Childhood Stuttering.
Ambrose, Nicoline Grinager; And Others
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v36 n4 p701-06 Aug 1993
Analysis of pedigrees from parents of 69 preschool children who stuttered revealed that more male than female relatives ever stuttered but that female subjects who stuttered had more female relatives who ever stuttered than did male subjects. Segregation analyses suggest that transmission of a single major genetic locus increases the liability to stuttering. (Author/JDD)
