Covert Stuttering: Coming Out of the Stuttering ClosetThe International Stuttering Awareness Day Online Conference (2012)
Research is sparse in regards to understanding covert stuttering alongside passing in society, life in the closet, and coming out of the closet. Covert stuttering has an evolving definition; just as the definition of overt stuttering cannot be simply stated, neither can covert stuttering. Covert stuttering can be understood as successfully hiding stuttering the majority of the time from listeners, and also the ability to maximize the use of accessory behaviors and social techniques to not stutter.
