This study examined visual analog scaling (VAS) judgments of disfluency by normal listeners in response to oral reading by speakers with spasmodic dysphonia (SD) and by nondysphonic controls, as well as the variables of frequency of occurrence of disfluencies, speaking rate, number of reading errors, and temporal acoustic measures of interword interval(More)
Simple motor reaction time (RT) was measured for arm movement in response to a known monosyllable presented by earphone. The required direction of movement (L or R) was known to S. Choice RT was also measured: only one word of a pair of taped monosyllabic words, differing only in the prevocalic consonant (e.g., tea-key) was presented by earphone.(More)
In order to evaluate the perceptions of young adolescents of their peers who wear hearing aids, observers were selected from four types of schools: rural, suburban, inner city, and a self-contained classroom for the hearing impaired. Observers made semantic differential ratings of two teen-aged peers, one of whom had normal hearing and one of whom had a(More)
Fourteen stutterers and 14 normal speakers read two passages differing in information value under two different conditions. Condition I provided subjects with a priori knowledge regarding the experimental limits and requirements. Condition II withheld such knowledge. Results indicate that adaptation curves for both stutterers and normal speakers were(More)
A previous factor-analytic investigation indicated that 18 variables, structured within interpersonal and technical skill dimensions, contribute most significantly to supervisor's evaluations of student clinicians engaged in speech therapy. The present study was designed to extend that investigation by determining the relative contribution of the variables(More)
