Flashcards in Lecture Question Deck (19):
1

Does stuttering tend to occur at utterance initial position?

Yes

2

Are many PWS predisposed to stutter in some way?

Yes

3

Is context variability evident in most, if not all, PWS?

Yes

4

Does anticipation/awareness impact the overt manifestation of stuttering?

Yes

5

Will only a small proportion of children who begin stuttering naturally recover?

No

6

Are the VFs an aperiodic sound source?

No

7

Do the VFs permit air flow to the pharynx?

Yes

8

Are the VFs a periodic sound source?

Yes

9

Do the VFs provide sound that is ultimately shaped in the vocal tract?

Yes

10

Do PWS have reduced activity in Broca's area when compared with PWNS?

Yes

11

Do PWS have elevated activity in the auditory cortex when compared with PWNS?

Yes

12

Do PWS have reduced activity in frontal areas responsible for attention/covert articulation when compared with PWNS?

Yes

13

Do PWS have a generalized increase in white matter integrity when compared with PWNS?

No

14

Can we safely conclude at this point that genetic make-up is responsible for all cases of stuttering?

No

15

Does stuttering appear to involve a general or pervasive motor deficit?

No

16

Is temperament considered to be a constitutional characteristic?

Yes

17

Null findings between PWS/PWNS in the language system domain have led some to conclude that PWS have fully intact language systems.

Why is this a potential incorrect conclusion reached by some researchers and clinicians?

Because standardized testing may not capture subtle language differences

18

Why are we interested in studying stuttering as a response?

Because it may help to explain stuttering variability

19

Does the frequency of overt stuttering behaviors tend to remain constant over repeated readings of the same material?

No
