The Genetic Basis of Persistence and Recovery in Stuttering.
Ambrose, Nicoline Grinager; Cox, Nancy J.; Yairi, Ehud
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v40 n3 p567-80 Jun 1997
Immediate and extended families of 66 stuttering children were investigated to determine frequencies of persistent and recovered stuttering. Recovery was far more common among females than males. Recovery or persistence was found to be transmitted, but the two types are not genetically independent, consistent with hypothesis that both forms share a common genetic etiology, but that persistence is due in part to additional genetic factors.
