Ambiguity and Algorithms in Diagnosing Early Stuttering: Comments on Ambrose and Yairi (1999).
Onslow, Mark; Packman, Ann
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v44 n3 p593-94 Jun 2001
This letter critiques a research report (Ambrose and Yairi, 1999) on diagnosis of stuttering in young children, especially the methodological issues concerned with subject selection criteria that excluded borderline cases and the use of a weighting procedure to eliminate group overlap. Also noted is the failure to distinguish between stuttering and disfluency in the original authors' comments on another study. (Contains five references.) (DB)
