Natural Recovery during Early Childhood Stuttering

Most preschool and early school age children who stutter recover without treatment usually within the first few years of onset, with reported rates ranging from 50 to 74 (Brosch, Haege, Kalehne, & Johannsen, 1999 Mansson, 2000 Yairi & Ambrose, 1999). This recovery is often sufficiently complete that the children's recovered speech is perceptually indistinguishable from that of normally fluent children (Finn, Ingham, Ambrose, & Yairi, 1997). The mechanisms underlying early childhood recovery are still unclear. However, there is evidence to suggest that genetic factors may play a role because many children who recover without treatment are more likely to report a family history of recovery than children who continue to stutter (Ambrose, Cox, & Yairi, 1997). There are indications that environmental factors may also be important in promoting natural recovery. Parents whose children recovered without treatment often reported that they encouraged their child to slow down or stop and say it...

Treatment Approaches for Managing Stuttering After Childhood

For children who continue to stutter into their elementary school years and beyond, it is widely believed that the longer they live with the disorder, the more persistent and chronic it will become (Guitar, 1998). As a result, approaches to managing persistent forms of stuttering are usually more complex and place a greater emphasis on self-control or self-regulation. The two best-known approaches for addressing persistent stuttering are generally referred to as stutter modification, or attitude therapy, and speech modification, or behavior modification therapy. The stutter modification approach is based on the premise that clients must learn to accept their stuttering and self-regulate their reactions to stuttering, such as minimizing or eliminating their avoidance and struggle behaviors (Manning, 2001). Thus, treatment goals focus on self-acceptance of one's stuttering and reducing negative attitudes toward oneself as a communicator. The speech modification approach is based on the...

What Is Stuttering

Stuttering is a highly variable disorder characterized by involuntary disruptions in speech fluency that usually consist of sound or word repetitions, sound prolongations, and momentary blocks during which no or very little sound is emitted. These disruptions are often marked by noticeable struggle, effort, and muscle tension. Debilitating feelings about communication and oneself as a speaker often develop, as well as avoidance behaviors related to speaking, especially in certain situations such as talking on the telephone or speaking to strangers. Onset of stuttering is usually between the ages of 2 and 5 years, with more males than females presenting with long-term symptoms. Prevalence, or the number of cases at a given time, is 5 and incidence, or average life frequency, is 1 (Bloodstein, 1995). Current theories and research suggest that stuttering is a genetically predisposed, neurophysiological speech disorder (Brown, Ingham, Ingham, Laird, & Fox, 2005 Felsenfeld et al., 2000).

Findings from Late Recovery Research Methodological Challenges

The importance of investigating late recovery without treatment is sometimes overshadowed by troublesome methodological challenges. Retrospective designs have been the main approach for investigating late recovery. Because research subjects are being investigated when they are no longer presenting with stuttered speech behaviors, there have been questions concerning the validity of participants' claims that they did, in fact, once have a clinically valid stuttering problem (Ingham, 1983). Furthermore, it is important to establish that their recovery was reasonably independent of any formal treatment that might have been received for their stuttering. Obviously, if recovery was clearly linked to formal treatment, then it is no longer a valid sample of untreated recovery. These two concerns have been recently addressed in the literature. First, since past speech behavior such as stuttering cannot be verified directly, the most practical approach for cross-checking participants' claims...

Mechanisms of Selfchange

Self-change as a possible mechanism for late untreated recovery from stuttering has been recognized for centuries. Bormann (1969), for example, described an account of the seventeenth century Colonial American clergyman and author, Cotton Mather, who self-managed his stuttering when he was 18 years old by practicing speaking slowly and deliberately. An early report by Heltman (1941) presented an account of a male who, during his high school and college years, overcame his severe stuttering by developing public speaking skills and actively competing in speaking contests and debates. Freund (1970) described a self-improvement program that he began when he was 35 years old that included practicing speaking in a smooth, melodic manner in various situations that led to reductions in his avoidance behavior. More recently, Anderson and Felsenfeld (2003) detailed three individuals who recovered after childhood without the benefit of treatment and categorized their reasons for recovery as a...

Are These Accounts of Self Change Credible

The fact that subjects may attribute their recovery to self-management of their own speech behavior or thoughts and feelings related to speaking does not necessarily mean that this is the actual reason for their improvement. However, these descriptions of recovery by self-directed means are often remarkably similar to the clinical routines clients are instructed to follow in many well-known treatment programs (Finn, 2004 Ingham et al., 2005). In fact, systematic changes in speech behavior such as slowing down are well-established as effective treatment agents for long-term clinical reductions in stuttering (Bothe et al., 2006 Cordes, 1998) and there are compelling theoretical reasons (Perkins, 1989), as well as empirical evidence from treatment outcome research (Craig, 1998), to suggest that changes in attitude, especially increased self-confidence, are critical to long-term maintenance of treatment gains. Perhaps, most important of all, self-management and self-evaluation have been...

Outcomes of Self Managed Late Recovery

Based on investigator judgment or subject self-report, outcomes of late recovery without treatment have suggested that the subjects' speech behavior is normally fluent in most cases, but there still may be an occasional tendency to stutter (see for review, Finn, 2004). The percentage of subjects reporting a tendency to still stutter ranged across early studies from 9 (Johnson, 1950) to 64 (Shearer & Williams, 1965). Findings from more recent studies, however, have been more consistent with a range of 60 (Finn, 1997) to 72.8 , with the latter based on a sample size of 103 subjects (Finn & Felsenfeld, 2006). Listener judgments of the speech behavior of late recovered speakers, based on videotaped speech samples, have revealed that their speech is perceptually distinguishable from normal controls (Finn, 1997 Finn et al., 2005). Not surprisingly, it is the speakers who still report an occasional tendency to stutter that contributes to this perceptual difference. In contrast, those...

Recent Findings and Future Directions

As this overview has suggested, self-managed late recovery from persistent forms of stuttering is possible and this recovery is often enduring. It is also clear, however, that improvement is not always complete. Some late recovered speakers continue to have residual stuttering, and although it is infrequent and readily controllable, they also report that they do not experience any sense of handicap and are essentially completely functional as everyday communicators (Finn et al., 2005). Future research will need to examine why some individuals are able to self-manage a complete recovery and others are not. Two hypotheses appear to be plausible. The first is that residual stuttering may represent the limits of any recovery, treated or untreated, because the diminished capacity for neural plasticity in adulthood may place constraints on expectations for producing a completely normally fluent speaker (Ingham et al., 2005). Related to this are recent findings that there may be a...

Problems In The Evaluation Of Clinical Results

A wide variety of psychogenic physical problems have in the past been favorably influenced by LSD psychotherapy this applies equally to organ-neurotic manifestations, symptoms that have the dynamic structure of hysterical or pregenital conversions, and psychosomatic diseases. Painful conditions of various kinds, such as ordinary or migraine headaches, severe menstrual cramps, gastric or intestinal spasms, pains in the neck muscles or in the lumbar area, and even arthritic pains without a detectable organic basis can be traced back to their origins and worked through in the course of LSD therapy. Neurotic disorders of various organs, such as cardiac dysfunction, gastric distress, breathing difficulties, excessive sweating, muscular tremors, constipation or diarrhea, and menstrual irregularities often disappear in the course of LSD treatment. Far-reaching improvements of myopia, which occurred as an unexpected side-effect during LSD psychotherapy with two neurotic patients in Prague,...

History And Legal Status

Ecstasy remained largely unused as a recreational drug through the 1960s and early 1970s. However, in the late 1970s, a biochemist at the University of California at Berkeley named Alexander Shuglin was approached by a student who claimed to have used MDMA to fix a stuttering problem. Shuglin decided to synthesize the drug and take it himself. He wrote a scientific

The Phenomenon of Untreated Recovery after Childhood

The conventional wisdom is that untreated recovery becomes increasingly less likely after childhood and the need for treatment becomes increasingly more likely (e.g., Guitar, 1998). Nonetheless, there is research suggesting that persistent stuttering is not always as intractable as widely believed. Review of the past research literature on untreated recovery shows that on average, 70.7 (range 56.9-90 ) of subjects estimated that their age of recovery was during adolescence or adulthood and that much of this improvement occurred without the benefit of professional help (Finn, 2004). More recent findings based on a sample of 103 adult participants, the largest sample of persons who recovered from stuttering without treatment, found that 57 reported that they had recovered at or after the age of 12 years, with an average age of recovery being 17.7 years of age (range 12-35 years of age Finn & Felsenfeld, 2006). It should be cautioned, however, that these studies perhaps underestimated...

The Medical Use Of Cannabis Sativa

Charas is the resinous exudation that collects on the leaves and flowering tops of the plants. It is the most active part of the plant and is a valuable narcotic, especially in cases where opium cannot be used. It is of great value in malaria, chronic headache, migraine, acute mania, whooping cough, asthma, anaemia of the brain, nervous vomiting, tetanic convulsion, insanity, delirium, dysuria and nervous exhaustion. It is also used as an anesthetic in dysmenorrhoea, as an appetizer and aphrodisiac, as an anodyne in the itching of eczema, in neuralgia, in pain from the various kinds of corns, etc. Homeopathic-ally it is a wonderful remedy for stuttering, yielding remarkable results. In the lower potencies, it is used against bladder troubles with urine retention and painful urges. It has been known to relieve the symptoms in cases of oppressed breathing and palpitation. It is also given against nightmares. Charas is given in doses from one-sixth to one-fourth of a grain, and is also...

Gabapentin

SIDE EFFECTS Usual (50-100 ) Sedation. Common (10-50 ) Impaired muscular coordination, gait unsteadiness. Less common (1-10 ) Anxiety, visual changes, stuttering, memory impairment, tremor. Those requiring attention from your physician Any physical or emotional changes not listed.

Methylphenidate

Children with ADHD may also experience muscle tics, which methylphenidate and other stimulants can worsen. Such a dual condition is challenging, but in short-term usage, methylphenidate has been found effective for lessening ADHD without increasing tics, even though one study found that almost 10 of ADHD children may develop temporary tics when taking methylphenidate. A case report notes that a child began stuttering when dosage started, with the stutter ceasing when dosage ceased.
