Newsflash! Stuttering continues to affect people as they approach death!

Bring out some gold stars for this one…  People surveyed old people relative to the perceived impact that stuttering has on their lives.  Results?  Stuttering has an impact on their lives.

The shame of it is that this could have been far more interesting data.  They never reported the overt severity of the participants, nor did they do other surveys–such as on locus of control.  Do old people with a strong internal locus of control still feel that stuttering has a significant negative impact on their lives?  This seems like a valid question, since there was a teen-stuttering-therapy study from a few months back finding that the therapy didn’t have much predictive value relative to treatment success; what did have predictive value was the teen’s attitude toward life, themselves, and the treatment.
