The monster study gets a little attention

Here’s a quick blog post about the monster study; it seems pretty accurate, although I’ve never read credible support stating that kids were truly turned into “stutterers”, but rather that these kids gained a nice healthy fear of repeated unjust social punishment.  (Unfortunately, Johnson wasn’t a real scientist, and likely saw what he wanted to see.)  My other comment is to really question if Johnson *did* indeed help his stuttering people.  His “seminal” work took us on a really bad detour for decades, and his flawed perspective continues to haunt the entire field of SLP even today.
