Investigations Of The Impact Of Altered Auditory Feedback In-The-Ear Devices On The Speech Of People Who Stutter: Initial Fitting And Four-Month Follow-Up
(East Carolina University, 2004)
Background: Self-contained ear-level devices delivering altered auditory feedback (AAF) for the application with those who stutter were only recently developed (Stuart et al. 2003). Aim: This paper examines the first ...
Inducement of Fluent Speech in Persons Who Stutter Via Visual Choral Speech
(East Carolina University, 2000)
A novel phenomenon of fluency enhancement via visual gestures of speech in the absence of traditional auditory feedback is reported herein. The effect on visual choral speech on stuttering frequency was investigated. Ten ...
Stereotypes of Stutterers and Nonstutterers in Three Rural Communities in Newfoundland
(East Carolina University, 1993-12)
The existence of a negative stereotype of stutterers among residents of three Small, rural communities in Newfoundland, Canada was investigated. Members of these communities (n=106) completed a 25 item semantic differential ...
Effect of Single and Combined Altered Auditory Feedback on Stuttering Frequency at Two Speech Rates
(East Carolina University, 1995)
The purpose of the study was to determine if combining delayed auditory feedback (DAF) and frequency altered feedback (FAF) would be more fluency enhancing than either DAF or FAF alone. Ten stutterers read at normal and ...
Self-contained In-The-Ear device to deliver altered auditory feedback: applications for stuttering
(East Carolina University, 2003)
The design and operating characteristics of the first self-contained in-the-ear device to deliver altered auditory feedback is described for applications with those who stutter. The device incorporates a microdigital signal ...
Methods and devices for delivering exogenously generated speech signals to enhance fluency in persons who stutter
(East Carolina University, 2004-06-22)
Methods and devices generate an exogenous natural second speech signal as an auditory stimulus to a user to enhance the fluency of persons who stutter. The natural speech signal is independent of the contemporaneous speech ...
Methods and devices for enhancing fluency in persons who stutter employing visual speech gestures
(East Carolina University, 2006-04-18)
Methods, devices, and computer program products display visual choral speech to a patient who stutters or has a speech impediment or impairment as a visual stimulus for the patient to enhance the fluency of the patient. ...
Effect of Normal and Fast Articulatory Rates on Stuttering Frequency
(East Carolina University, 1995)
The effect of speech rate on stuttering frequency was investigated with 20 stutterers. Subjects read two different 300 syllable passages at a normal and fast speech rate. Stuttering counts and articulatory rate was determined ...
Implementation Of An In-The-Ear Device To Alleviate Stuttering: Research Evidence
(East Carolina University, 2006)
Therapeutic device to ameliorate stuttering
(East Carolina University, 1999-10-05)
A device and method for ameliorating stuttering by providing an altered auditory feedback by employing a compact device configured for positioning in or adjacent the ear canal of an individual. The portable, self-contained ...
