Emotions influence stuttering

From the CEC Smart Brief:

Vanderbilt University researchers have found that 3- to 5-year-old children who stutter are more likely than their non-stuttering peers to become emotionally aroused by stress, take more time to settle down once aroused and become more distracted. Co-author Tedra Walden says the findings suggest some emotional reactions may pre-date the onset of stuttering, and contribute to it as well. Science Daily Magazine (6/18)
