SUMMARY

The development of a computer-based instrument designed to assess communication attitudes in children up to 7 years is described. The instrument will be included in a battery of tasks to assess and evaluate factors close to stuttering onset to determine whether stuttering will persist or recover. Preliminary analysis indicated that the instrument was reliable and valid. Results replicated previous studies (De Nil & Brutten, 1986, 1991; Boutsen & Brutten, 1989) indicating the communication attitudes of children who stutter were more negative than those of their peers.
