Abstract The popular Iowa School theory is contrasted to a neurologic explanation for stuttering onset and development. Ten Iowa School assumptions are identified, and the authors recommend alternative interpretations for each of these. The evidence supports a view that stuttering is due to neural incoordination and that direct clinical approaches are indicated as soon as the problem is identified.

Le présent article compare la populaire théorie de l'Iowa School sur le bégaiement et son développement à l'explication neurologique. Dix hypothèses de la théorie de l'Iowa School ont été cernées et les auteurs recommandent une interprétation différente pour chacune d'elles. Les preuves existantes appuient le point de vue que le bégaiement résulte d'une incoordination nerveuse et que des approches cliniques directes sont indiquées des l'identification du problème.
