Modification and Control of Rate of Speaking by Stutterers Frequency and percentage of words stuttered by three adult stutterers were assessed under conditions designed to modify and control rate of speaking. Target rates of 50% above base rate, 50% below base rate, and base rate were sought in experimental periods by on-line signalling of proximity to the target rate. ... Research Article

Frequency and percentage of words stuttered by three adult stutterers were assessed under conditions designed to modify and control rate of speaking. Target rates of 50% above base rate, 50% below base rate, and base rate were sought in experimental periods by on-line signalling of proximity to the target rate. A criterion of rate control was met by two subjects who reduced their frequency and percentage of words stuttered in the 50%-below-base rate condition. Some reduced stuttering occurred in other conditions.
