Speech Disfluencies in Adults with Neurogenic Stuttering Associated with Stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury (Case Study)

Speech Disfluencies in Adults with Neurogenic Stuttering Associated with Stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury (Case Study)

This study is part of a larger project aimed at exploring the speech, language, cognitive, psychosocial, and medical characteristics of adult neurogenic stuttering. In the present article, speech disfluency patterns in adults with neurogenic stuttering in two diagnostic groups, traumatic brain injury and stroke, were compared. The results revealed that people with neurogenic stuttering do not present as a homogeneous group but that they may present with different speech disfluency characteristics, as well as etiology-dependent self-perceptions. It is anticipated that the observations in the present article ultimately will lead to a greater understanding of the neural mechanisms underlying speech fluency and will result in more effective diagnostic and interventional approaches. **********
