Emotion/Attention Issues & Stuttering: Podcasts, Stereotypes, Covert Stuttering (WEBS0420408)

Course Description

This activity is a grouping of studies related to the understanding stuttering throughout the life span. The activity is based on articles related to attentional focus on motor control in people who stutter (PWS) and the relationship to social stress, acoustic measures of emotion in children who stutter, a study of covert stuttering throughout the lifespan, vocational stereotyping of PWS by human resource preprofessionals, and audio-based podcasts to assist in self-help for PWS. Together, these articles investigate important measures in understanding stuttering and how researchers and clinicians can better understand the condition of stuttering.

Learning Outcomes

  • describe the impact of role entrapment on people who stutter
  • summarize why the effects of social stress on speech-motor control is particularly relevant for adults who stutter
  • summarize the experiences of people who stutter who listen to stuttering-related podcasts
  • describe the speech therapy experiences of an individual who covertly stuttered across their life span
  • describe the link between acoustic parameters and emotion in children who stutter

Assessment Type
Self-assessment—Think about what you learned and report on the Completion Form how you will use your new knowledge.
