The Fork In the Road: Developmental Trajectories to Stuttering Persistence and Recovery--Video plus Assessment

In this one hour presentation, Bridget Walsh, Ph.D., CCC-SLP presents highlights from 15 years of large-scale research projects examining risk factors related to persistence and recovery in early childhood stuttering initiated at Purdue University and continuing at Michigan State University. She discusses new findings concerning the neurophysiological, behavioral, and clinical factors that differentiate children who persist or recover from stuttering. The findings reveal distinctly different patterns of brain activity during speech and language tasks in children who persist in stuttering and contribute to multivariable risk models used to predict the probability of stuttering persistence in preschoolers.
