Scores on Riley’s Stuttering Severity Instrument Versions Three and Four for samples of different length and for different types of speech material

The authors utilized the Stuttering Severity Instrument (versions 3 and 4) procedures for the assessment of readers and non-readers to see whether they give equivalent scores. Older children (ages 10-0 to 14-7) provided spontaneous and read samples, which were scored for severity according to reader and non-reader procedures. The authors reported confirmation of no significant difference in severity scores for the older children when the reader and non-reader procedures were used, and confirmed 200 syllables to be the minimum for obtaining stable SSI severity scores.
