SUMMARY

A parental history of stuttering makes children more susceptible to stuttering. Little is known about the effect of primary intervention. The goal of the project was to use primary intervention to reduce the incidence and prevalence of stuttering in young fluently speaking children with a parental history of stuttering. The prevention program was undertaken by 99 fluent speaking children. To date, 93 children have finished the one year program and 65 children have been followed for more than one year. The results obtained so far show that the incidence of stuttering is comparable to that of non-high risk children. Primary prevention is successful to reduce stuttering.
