Characteristics and assessment of acquired stuttering : a clinical guide
MetadataShow full item record
Disfluencies as a consequence of acquired stuttering can arise subsequent to neurological trauma, psychological stress, and medication use. Acquired stuttering presents as various clinical pictures depending on the etiology of the disfluencies. This leads to difficulties in the assessment, and ultimately treatment, process. Similarly, the onset, characteristics, associated symptomatology, and assessment processes of the disorder differ between individual cases. Thus, there is dispute in the current literature on the characteristics and diagnostic procedures involved with acquired stuttering. This report offers a comprehensive review of the nature and assessment of acquired stuttering, serving to compile and organize the current views of the disorder.
