Effet du temps d'écran sur les manifestations du bégaiement chez des enfants de 0 à 18 ans

Abstract : Many issues are raised with the emergence of screens, especially in the area of health. But stuttering is still an unknown area, with a lack of information about a possible link between screens and stuttering. Our problem is this: does the number of hours spent in front of screens have any influence on the stutter protests? The aim of this study is to verify if a link exists between the screen time and the stutter protests. For that, a questionnaire has been created to collect a lot of informations about the screen habits and the changes noticed - in stuttering and its contributing factors - with children of 2 to 18 years old. The questionnaire got two parts: the first one is for the parents, the second one is for the children. This second part exists in three different versions according to the child’s age (0-6 years; 6-12 years; 12-18 years). The answers show that 73,3% of parents observe changes with their children. 63,6% of the changes concern stuttering, 81,8% concern the contributing factors. These results are not significative but demonstrate a tendency, because in this participants group, screens have an impact on stuttering and its contributing factors. This study confirms the hypothesis that screens have an effect on stutter protests, and give some tools to speech and language therapists to prevent against the excess of screen, and for the stuttering therapy. More research is necessary to precise the associated factors or the type of screens with a particular impact.
