In Understanding Stuttering, a practicing physician who has conducted research on stuttering examines the biological roots of the problem.

He defines stuttering as a medical condition that is neurologically based and has a large genetic component. In clear language he explains the basics of brain anatomy and function and tells of the latest scientific advances in the diagnosis and treatment of stuttering. Using examples from his practice, he details effective treatments, including speech therapy and medications.

He also discusses promising research and how the findings will improve treatments and possibly provide a cure.

Understanding Stuttering concludes with practical tips on how to converse with those who stutter and lists organizations that provide additional information and support.

Dr. Nathan Lavid, formerly a faculty member at the University of Southern California School of Medicine, is in private psychiatric practice in southern California.
