Abstract

Abstract The present case study documents the development and cessation of stuttering during language recovery following an acquired left hemisphere infarct in a previously normal seven-year-old boy. Based upon analyses of spontaneous speech samples recorded periodically from 1 to 31 months post-lesion onset, the study traces the development of stuttering type disfluencies coincident with increases in the use of complex sentence structures and decreases in speaking rate. The study provides one of the first detailed descriptions of neurologically induced stuttering in children.
