Abstract

The results are reported of a questionnaire study into the awareness of stuttering of lay persons in part of Belgium. 1,362 subjects were interviewed. Questions pertained to various aspects of stuttering including prevalence, onset, gender distribution and occurrence in different cultures, cause, treatment, intelligence and hereditariness. Although most respondents were to some extent familiar with stuttering, their overall knowledge of the disorder appeared generally limited.
