dc.description.abstractSTATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM: This study was designed to test the hypothesis that the expressed problems of adolescent stutterers are not significantly different from the expressed problems of adolescent non-stutterers. It was postulated also that published problem inventories developed for the general population may be inadequate for research with atypical groups. The individual with a stuttering handicap may have the usual kinds of problems tapped by various problem inventories. In addition, he may have unique kinds of problems associated with the stuttering handicap. RESEARCH PROCEDURES: A thorough research of the literature indicated that no problem inventory had been developed from research with stutterers. Hence, it was necessary to develop a problem inventory as part of this study. Thirty-six secondary-school stutterers and 164 secondary-school non-stutterers were asked to express their problems in ten areas: 1) My Personality; 2) My Speech; 3) My School Life; 4) My Personal Appearance; 5) My Home and Family; 6) My Abilities and Talents; 7) My Future; 8) My Friends; 9) Other People; and 10) Other Things I Want to Write About. Content analysis of the compositions in which they told of their problems resulted in the construction of a problem inventory containing 220 problem items [TRUNCATED]en_US
