Abstract : The adjustment and effectiveness of stutterers in military life were studied by comparing their performance in various areas with the performance of the Army as a whole. It was concluded that stutterers probably do not differ as a group from the over-all Army in the type of occupational specialties held, rates of promotion, and incidence of disciplinary action. This ability to adjust and perform effectively is independent of any treatment of the disorder although it is assumed that successful therapy would allow the stutterer to be even more effective by releasing energies otherwise directed at the management of his difficulties in communication.
