Thank you for giving me the opportunity to ask my questions! While reviewing the literature, I came across differences of opinion between authors on how to score the repetitions of word.
Sometimes, a monosyllabic word repeated twice counts as a stuttering moment (e.g. Yairi) while other times it doesn’t. Would it be possible to elaborate on the second point of view? Is it compatible with “unambiguous stuttering” terminology? Should monosyllabic word be counted when using SSI 3 & 4? Does the Lidcombe program specify anything about word repetition (unofficially I guess)?
Moreover, which norm do you consider to identify if a %SS is associated with normal speech or stuttering depending on the age of the client? I’ve seen 1% SS, 2% SS, 3% SS and 4,6% SS but the authors are not necessarily using the same way to score disfluencies. Could you elaborate on which disfluencies are included for each %SS?
I don’t normally need this value to identify if a client stutter or not, but I still find it an interesting guideline.
Thanks again !
