Language and Fluency Characteristics of Preschoolers' Multiple-Utterance Conversational Turns.

This study examined language and fluency characteristics of single-utterance (SU) and multiple-utterance (MU)conversational turns produced by 15 preschoolers who stutter and 15 nonstuttering peers. Results suggest that MU turns are demanding for young children because they evoke relatively long and complex utterances and that clinicians should consider conversational turn length when assessing and treating this population.
