Stuttering & Cluttering
Presenter: Dina Lilian
Stuttering is defined as a ‘disruption of the forward flow of speech either by repetitions and / or blocks’. According to research, stuttering is caused by ‘a complex interplay of a number of different factors’.
A short review of the definition and known causes of stuttering will be discussed. A recap of some indirect strategies which were discussed during Part 1 of the 2022 Stuttering presentation will also be reviewed. The presentation will then proceed to discuss the differences between stuttering and cluttering. Possible causes and contributing factors will also be addressed.
