This investigation is part of a research project, that received a grant from FAPESP (2011/10000-2), entitled "Randomized clinical trial - the use of SpeechEasy in stuttering treatment". The purpose of this investigation - the reading task - is to look more closely at one of the speech variables that will be investigated in mother Project. The study "Speech fluency analyses in a reading task" will compare the performance of individuals who stutter in two speech tasks: isolated reading (although this task induces speech fluency, it requires a high level of attention and pausing control) and chorus reading (a more propitious condition to promote speech fluency for those who stutter because there are no self-expressive components - the text is given and the reader/pair controls pausing). The hypothesis of the research is that isolated reading will present a higher number of speech disruptions than reading in chorus. (AU)
