Abstract:Results revealed that in comparison to published references established for normal children, children with a history of stuttering exhibited mean cortisol and alpha-amylase levels that were significantly lower. Though cortisol and alpha-amylase levels were within normal limits, daily circadian rhythms were generally disrupted for both biomarkers. Children with a history of stuttering tended to report positive emotions prior to submitting afternoon and evening samples and identified seeking social support and self-reliance, problem solving as their preferred coping strategies.
