A first account of a prospective study of attention deficit disorders among school-age stutterers - in the settings of a fluency clinic newly opened in a large general hospice - has led to the evidence of a significant association between impulsivity and stuttering. It seems therefore necessary to include attention tests among the subtests of our assessment protocols. Ways of helping the young stutterers with ADD are later thoroughly described.
