FluencyBank is a shared database for the study of the development of fluency in both typical and disordered populations. Participants include typically-developing monolingual and bilingual children, children and adults who stutter (C/AWS) or who clutter (C/AWC), and second language learners.
Fluency development project
This project examines the relationship between the fluency of children's speech and their language skills.
We are following 90 children (typical monolingual, bilingual, stuttering and late talking) over the course of four years to track language and fluency growth. Data will be added to our open-access archive of language samples and supporting documentation (TalkBank/CHILDES Project).
This research is being conducted by Dr. Nan Bernstein Ratner at the University of Maryland, College Park and Dr. Brian MacWhinney of Carnegie-Mellon University.
