I really appreciate your paper. As a graduate student the countless definitions of stuttering can be overwhelming and your paper helped to clear up some confusion. In the paper you mentioned, “With this new terminology attention can be drawn to the fact that children who stutter should not necessarily be denied therapy simply because they have minor overt dysfluency. They may well have frequent covert dysfluency.” Are there any assessments that are effective in assessing covert dysfluency?
