The stuttering is a multifactorial disorder, with influence of some factors considered of risk, namely: age, gender, manner of onset, interval between onset of the disfluencies and date of interview; typology of the disfluencies; associated communicative and qualitative factors; physical and emotional stresses; family history of stuttering; personal, familiar and social reaction, and familiar attitudes (Andrade, 2006). Researches about risk factors are importants to help the diagnosis and treatment of stuttering. The objective of this study is to analyze the relation among the gender, age, time of duration of the disfluencies, typology of the disfluencies, physical and emotional stresses in children at high risk of stuttering and with family history of the disorder. The participants will be 50 children of both genders, with ages ranging from 3 to 11 years, brazilian portuguese speaking, without neurological, auditory, cognitive and/or visual deficit, regarded by parents as having a "stuttering problem" and bigger punctuation in the high risk of stuttering column. The data were gathered through the Protocol of Risk for the Developmental Stuttering - PRGD (Andrade, 2006). The data of this study will be analyzed by statistical methods.
