Specific research activities
The main goal of the present study was to assess therapy outcomes using a variety of stuttering measurements based on Van Riper’s intensive therapy approach. Second research was conducted to specify any changes that are adopted in different speech situations (in the stabilization phase), and to demonstrate that changes are maintained after the therapy (1, 2, and 3 years after the treatment).
Measurement for adults includes determination of index of dysfluencies (ID) - the number of stuttering events divided by the number of syllables, and duration of dysfluences (DDs) - in seconds, for the three longest stuttering events.Specific stuttering measurements: Application of SSI - 3 developed by Riley (46) – (Table 2 and Table 3).
