(WEST LAFAYETTE) - Purdue University researchers need 4- and 5-year-old children who stutter to participate in a five-year study to study why some children continue to stutter and others grow out of it.

Professors Anne Smith and Christine Weber-Fox will follow 100 children who stutter over five years.

To be eligible for the study, children must display stuttered speech, speak English, have hearing within the normal range; and no learning or neurological difficulties.

Families of participating children will receive $100, and those who live more than 60 miles away will receive $200. Each family also will receive a free assessment of the child's speech, language and hearing abilities and a written summary of speech and language test results.
