Abstract: Methods , devices and systems treat non-stuttering speech and/or language related disorders by administering a delayed auditory feedback signal having a delay of under about 200 ms via a portable device. The DAF treatment may be delivered on a chronic basis. For certain disorders , such as Parkinson's disease , the delay is set to be under about 100 ms , and may be set to be even shorter such as about 50 ms or less. Certain methods treat cluttering (an abnormally fast speech rate) by exposing the individual to a DAF signal having a sufficient delay that automatically causes the individual to slow his or her speech rate.
