The purpose of this study is to determine the diagnostic criteria of cluttering. We have tested 55 subjects between eight and sixteen years of age. We used adapted and modified Daly’s Checklist for Possible Cluttering. The test results have allowed us to divide the children into four groups: pure stuttering, a mixed form with a prevalence of stuttering, a mixed form with a prevalence of cluttering, and pure cluttering. The subjects with pure cluttering and the ones with the mixed form where cluttering dominated were studied more carefully. The results include characteristics of their oral speech, serial organisation of movements and sense of rhythm, intellectual processes and attention.
