I am interested in your thoughts on delayed auditory feedback (DAF) devices. I know that DAF can help some individuals who stutter to become more fluent, and I have seen devices that look similar to a hearing aid that can provide DAF to the wearer during conversation. The one individual who I knew that had this device was not very happy with it’s performance. He said he did not think it helped to increase his fluency, partially because the microphone picked up too much background noise, and replayed it in his ear. Is this a typical response to these types of devices? Has there been much success in using DAF to increase fluency in conversational language outside of the clinic?
