Emotional reactivity and regulation associated with fluent and stuttered utterances of preschool-age children who stutter

The authors sought to assess the relation between emotional reactivity and regulation associated with fluent and stuttered utterances of preschool-age children who stutter (CWS) and those who do not (CWNS), and reported CWS were significantly more likely to exhibit emotion regulation attempts prior to and during their fluent utterances following the happy condition, and CWNS were significantly more likely to exhibit emotion regulation attempts prior to and during their fluency utterance following the negative condition. Within-group assessment indicated that CWS were significantly more likely to display negative emotion prior to and during their stuttered than fluent utterances, particularly following the positive overheard conversation.
