Two supplemental scoring procedures for diagnostic evaluations with the speech situations checklist
Over the years the Speech Situations Checklist (SSC; Brutten, 1973) has been used to systematically explore stutterers' self-reports of speech-related concerns and dysfluencies across a variety of speaking situations. The present review, based on findings of three previous investigations, suggests two supplemental procedures for analyzing the responses to the SSC to (1) confirm diagnostic decisions regarding stuttering and (2) improve the assessment of speech-related concern. Discriminant coefficients (Bakker and Brutten, 1982, 1984) of 31 items of the SSC were employed to construct a Discriminant Form that supports differential diagnostic decisions among those who do or do not stutter. Moreover, the results of two independent factor-analytic studies (Brutten and Janssen, 1980; Bakker, 1982) were integrated in a way that individual responses to the emotional reaction section of the SSC can be analyzed with regard to nine types of situationally cued speech-related concern. © 1995.
