Abstract. The purpose of this paper was to compare the percentage of stuttered words, the percentage of disfluent words not typically described as stuttering, and the total of all disfluencies between 28 individuals diagnosed with adductor spasmodic dysphonia (ADSD) and 28 age- and sex-matched controls. ADSD participants were tested prior to Botox injections and following Botox injections which have been shown to improve speech characteristics in ADSD.  No significant differences were found between groups for the percentage of stuttered words, the percentage of disfluent words not typically described as stuttering, nor the total of all disfluencies.
