Language ability of children with and without a history of stuttering: A longitudinal cohort study

The authors sought to determine whether the communication and language skills of children who have a history of stuttering are different from children who do not have a history of stuttering at ages 2–5 years and reported that the children with a history of stuttering, as a group, and the control group without a history of stuttering demonstrated developmentally-appropriate early communication and language skills.
