L’impact du bégaiement sur la qualité de vie des adolescents

Abstract : Purpose : Stuttering affects communication in terms of disfluencies, feelings and regarding the stigmatization it can cause. During the teen years, it is very common it will appear again, the risk is that it will hamper the personality’s construction, that it will cause isolation, etc. Life quality of teens who stutter will be affected. Thus, we will try to find out what, in the quality of life, is the most impacted with teenagers who stutter. And this, in order to provide scientific evidence, since the stuttering adolescent speech therapy is still poorly documented.
Methods / Materials : Twenty-nine stuttering adolescents aged 11 to 16 participated in this study. During the speech check, they completed the OASES questionnaire, and their 3 stuttering was rated on the Lidcombe severity scale and the Bloodstein avoidance scale. Statistical analyzes were subsequently performed.
Results : The areas of quality of life most impacted are the ability to express themselves as desired in high school / college, self-confidence, how one reacts to stuttering and the professional projection. There does not seem to be an impact of age, but the institution (college or high school) sometimes plays a role.
Conclusions : This study has shown that the priorities for rehabilitation include high school / college communication and self-confidence.
