Ex-Stutterer Now on Speech Clinic Staff IOWA CITY-Ninclecn years ago Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Boehmler drove the 160 miles from Hampton to Iowa City to bring their son Richard, 9, to Wendell Johnson, authority on stuttering who now directs the Stale University of Iowa speech clinic. Today Richard Boehmler, now a member of the speech clinic staff, and Director Johnson are inviting other parents of children who stutter or who seem to be developing tendencies in that direction to spend a day with them. Free Guidance Dr. Boehmler is supervisor of a Hill foundation project which provides free diagnosis, and guidance in return for parent assistance in the clinic's investigation of the beginnings of stuttering in children. To help develop a clearer picture of differences between those who stutter and those Who don't, he urges all parents of children who have been stuttering less than two years to join the project. After visiting the SUI speech clinic, some families have been relieved to learn that their child does not stutter at all. Normal non-fluencies and repetitions in learning a language are often confused with stuttering, Dr. Boehmler explains. In order to complete the investigation for knowledge useful in diagnosing and arresting stuttering in its early stages, the SUI clinic plans to work with a total of 150 families with children who have stuttered less than two years and an equal number of non-stuttering families as a "control group." T^ie project is now 50 families short of its necessary quota of stutterers. Seek All Facfs The stuttering research leaders want to know all the facts connected with the first evidences of stuttering--the child's physical, social and mental development, also bis first words, sentences and topics of conversation. Nearly one per cent of Iowa's school population stutter, and speech pathologists hope Iowa parents will help them fill in the gaps of understanding as to why only particular children, become stut terers, Dr. Boehmler points out.
