The Genetics of Stuttering:
Discovery of the Causes

Dennis Drayna, Ph.D.

    In this exciting new 44-minute DVD, Dennis Drayna, Ph.D., researcher at the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communicative Disorders, National Institutes of Health, discusses his team's discovery of the first three genes for stuttering.
    These findings emphasize that stuttering has biological causes. Although its symptoms can be affected by emotional factors, stuttering is not an emotional disorder. Nor is it a social disorder, or a psychological disorder.
    Although this discovery is unlikely to have immediate applications for therapy, this identification of causes of the disorder opens many new doors to understanding exactly what goes wrong during speech production in stutterers.
    Join us for an exciting lecture about these results, which point the way to potential new treatments for stuttering.
