The chief purpose of this thesis is not to present a body of scientific observations in support of one particular theory of treatment. Nor is this the place to record the testing out of all of the possible theories presented.

Nevertheless, the results of some practical experience are recorded to show the necessity of understanding the psychogenetic approach to this neglected phase of our education, as well as understanding the organic approach, My chief aim is first to be of aid to teachers in the grammar schools who are confronted most with this problem; and, secondly, to stimulate further research among students of speech disorders.
