Orofacial Muscle Activity of Children Who Stutter: A Preliminary Study.
Kelly, Ellen M.; And Others
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v38 n5 p1025-36 Oct 1995
This preliminary investigation of stuttering development and maturation of speech motor processes recorded the electromyographic activity of the orofacial muscles of nine children who stuttered. Results suggest that the emergence of tremor-like instabilities in the speech motor processes of stuttering children may coincide with aspects of general neural maturation and with development of stuttering.
