Abstract

Summary
Aim: Stuttering types in 8-12 years old Turkish children who stutter were evaluated.
Material and Method: Patients having speech disorders who applied to Hacettepe University Audiology and Speech Pathology Department were evaluated. Fifteen stutterers who had the criteria for diagnosis of stuttering were included in the study. 
Results: Mean age of the patients were 8.3 years, and of the 15 patients 13 (86.7%) were males and 2 (13.3%) were females. Stuttering types in patients were 89.7% within-words and 11.3% were between words. Within-words stuttering types were significantly higher than between words stuttering types (p=0.001).
Conclusions: Dysfluencies beginning in the preschool period, without any intervention turn to be stuttering during the schoolage period. Therefore, early intervention strategies and sharing of those strategies with families are important to prevent stuttering. (Turk Arch Ped 2010; 45: 141-3)
Key words: Dysfluency, school-age, stuttering types
