CHUN, Regina Yu Shon; MENDES, Carina Dantas; YARUSS, J Scott  e  QUESAL, Robert W. The impact of stuttering on quality of life of children and adolescents. Pró-Fono R. Atual. Cient. [online]. 2010, vol.22, n.4, pp.567-570. ISSN 0104-5687.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-56872010000400035.

BACKGROUND: understanding the experience of people who stutter, both in and out treatment, will lead to improved outcomes. AIM: to investigate how stuttering affects the quality of life of children and adolescents who stutter. METHOD: the Overall Assessment of the Speaker's Experience of Stuttering - School-Age (OASES-S) was used to assess the impact of stuttering and the Fluency Profile Protocol was used to stuttering severity. RESULTS: these age groups do experience moderate negative impact as measured by the OASES-S. The results showed a tendency toward a positive correlation between severity and the impact of stuttering on quality of life. CONCLUSION: a better understanding of the impact of stuttering in these age groups provides a needed guide for the development of stuttering treatments and treatment outcomes research.
