We appreciate the opportunity to respond to DiSimoni’s “Comment” regarding our article “Selected Temporal Aspects of Coordination During Fluent Speech of Young Stutterers,” (Conture, Colton, & Gleason, 1988). Our reading of his letter indicates that DiSimoni has three specific areas of concern regarding our study: (1) we apparendy overlooked the possibility that “incoordination” does not cause stuttering, (2) we inappropriately speculated that young stutterers’ disruptions in speech production may be “subtle” and/or “brief,” and (3) we may have blurred the distinction between “scientific truth” or fact and “theory.” It is also our reading of his letter that he had no significant concerns with our methods or results. Thus, DiSimoni’s chief concerns appears to relate to some interpretation of our findings as reported in the discussion section of the article rather than the basic rationale, method, and findings of our study.
