Stuttering Severity InstrumentFourth Edition
(SSI-4) is a reliable and valid norm-referenced stuttering assessment
that can be used for both clinical and search purposes. It measures
stuttering severity in both children and adults in the four areas of
speech behavior:


  1. frequency
  2. duration
  3. physical concomitants
  4. naturalness of the individuals speech.


Frequency
is expressed in percent syllables stuttered and converted to scale
scores of 2-18. Duration is timed to the nearest one tenth of a second
and converted to scale scores of 2-18. The four types of Physical
Concomitants are and converted to scale scores of 0-20. The SSI-4 can also be used in conjunction with the Stuttering Prediction Instruments for Young Children (SPI).



SSI-4
was normed on a sample of 72 preschool-aged children, 139 school-aged
children, and 60 adults. It has four components, each of which is used
to assess and monitor the stuttering severity in both children and
adults for clinical and research use: (1) Examiners Manual and Picture
Plates, (2) Test Record and Frequency Computation Forms, (3) Subjective
Stuttering Scales, and (4) Computerized Scoring of Stuttering Severity
(Software Version 2.0).



The Computerized Scoring of the
Stuttering Severity (Version 2; CSSS-2.0) software is provided to
facilitate the calculation of frequency and duration. The CSSS-2.0
automatically produces a record of the percentage of syllables stuttered
(frequency) and the duration of the three longest stuttering events.
