The first speaker will summarize how studies on genetic factors in stuttering have led to the first understanding of the causes of the disorder at the molecular level. This portion of the symposium will also discuss how additional chromosomal loci may identify additional molecular deficits that cause stuttering, and also relate stuttering to other human communication disorders.
