    Fluency rate
  23. When determining a disfluency index, how many disfluencies should be recorded for this utterance: "I-want-I-want-I-want to go!"
  24. When clients are observed to use other words or to talk around a subject to avoid disfluencies, they are demonstrating the use of ___________?

    Slow rate of speech
  28. A four year old child presents to the HUSC for evaluation based on parental concerns that he will develop chronic stuttering. What combination of factors should the SLP consider in determining the child's risk for continuing to stutter?
    Type and frequency of disfluencies, family history, articulation and language skills and motor abilities
  29. Cluttering may be a positive diagnosis when a child:
    Speaks with a fast, irregular rate of speech, imprecise articulation and excessive use of nonstuttering like disfluencies.
  30. Anxiety is often associated with stuttering. Symptoms of stuttering may be cognitive, behavioral, and physiological symptom would present as as:
    A dry mouth and throat
  31. A pattern of breathing that results in poor respiratory support for speech, relies on accessory muscles of the neck and presents with shoulder elevation upon inhalation is known as:
  32. An assessment task that aids in the measurement of respiratory and phonatory efficiency is the:
    S/Z ratio
  33. If a client presents with an s/z ratio that is 3.5 with normal duratoin on s, the SLP could conclude that:
    There is more likelihood of laryngeal pathology rahter than respiratory inefficiency
  34. During a voice evaluation, the SLP is observed to occlude the client's nares and have her repeat the words "baby" "buggy" "taco bell" and " I saw Suzie swimming over there." The SLP is most likely listening for:

  41. A person with dyslexia will typically present will delays in receptive/expressive language
  42. Phonological awareness abilities are predictive of literacy abilities
  43. The most important procedure for an evaluation of stuttering is the collection of the speech sample?
