Project Description

This corpus contains records from 23 children who stutter (15 were originally used for the published research), and 15 age- , gender- and SES-matched fluent peers used in a series of published research reports from 1997 to 2012. Children who stutter (CWS) were enrolled within 3 months of stuttering onset. Typically-fluent peers were recruited, as often as possible, from within the stuttering child’s social circle.

All publications were based upon the single initial visit to the clinic; a number of children provided additional samples over the following year. These are marked as “follow-up” samples.
