Introduction: The auditory processing has proved to be a valuable tool to characterize the auditory skills in patients with diagnosis of developmental stuttering. Aim: To evaluate the auditory processing in individuals diagnosed with developmental stuttering. Method: This project will be developed at the Center for the Study of Education and Health of the College of Philosophy and Science - UNESP - Campus Marilia. Forty subjects will participate of this study, 20 with persistent developmental stuttering and 20 without stuttering. The Persistent Developmental Stuttering group titled EG (experimental group) will be recruited from the Laboratory of Studies of Fluency and individuals without stuttering (CG - control group) will be recruited from the community, matched to EG on gender and age, and should present the following criteria: no current or previous complaint of stuttering in speech nor family history positive for persistent stuttering or recovered. All participants will undergo a peripheral hearing assessment (pure tone audiometry, speech audiometry and tympanometry) and behavioral tests to assess central auditory processing. To assess the central auditory process it will be used compact discs (CDs) containing the recorded tests presented through a CD player coupled to two-channel audiometer. The results will be analyzed statistically. (AU)
