Clinical technologies for the reduction of stuttering and enhancement of speech fluency
Among the clinical technologies for the treatment of fluency disorders presented in this article are systems for assisting and automating feedback on stuttering severity, establishing speech changes that enhance fluency, and modifying speech-related sensory feedback for fluency enhancement. Some additional technologies, which have been implemented only in research but are expected to find their way to clinicians in the near future, are also discussed. The effectiveness of microcomputer applications for the treatment of stuttering has received little research; however, some answers about their effectiveness may be inferred from descriptions of their operational features and published specifications.
