Abstract

The Overall Assessment of the Speaker's Experience of Stuttering (OASES; Yaruss and Quesal, 2006) was designed based on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) model developed by the WHO. The OASES consists of four sections that together provide for a comprehensive assessment of the overall stuttering experience from the perspectives of individuals who stutter. The OASES was translated to Japanese (OASES-J) and administered in 30 adults who stutter who also participated in stuttering self-help groups. The results indicated that most of the participants showed a 'moderate to severe' impact rating in the Reactions to Stuttering section. In addition, most of the participants showed a 'mild to moderate' impact rating in the Communication in Daily Situations and the Quality of Life sections. Concerning the OASES-J itself, the results suggested that certain issues remain to be solved from the clinical standpoint, such as the time required for responding to 100 questions and difficulties in understanding some of the questions. However, results also showed that while there were differences in the average scores between sections, there were also high correlations between sections. These findings were consistent with previous results overseas, indicating that the OASES-J can be an internationally-standardized useful tool for assessing individuals who stutter.
