What is stuttering l.jpg
What is Stuttering? ICD-9-CM

Stuttering affects the fluency of speech. For a majority of those who stutter it begins during childhood and, in some cases, lasts throughout life. The disorder is characterized by disruptions in the production of speech sounds, also called "disfluencies.”

http://www.asha.org/public/speech/disorders/stuttering.htm

There are three major presentations for stuttering:

With onset in childhood (usually 2-5 years; ~95% of referrals

Following neurological damage (e.g., after CVA)

With onset after childhood, often viewed as potential conversion reaction or malingering (very rare)

Current icd 9 cm placement and 2010 placement l.jpg
Current ICD-9-CM Placement and 2010 Placement ICD-9-CM

Chapter 5. Mental Disorders (290-319)

307 Special symptoms or syndromes, not elsewhere classified

Chapter 7. Circulatory System (390-459)

438 Late effects of cerebrovascular disease

Takes effect October 1, 2009

Thus, only two of the three presentations have unique codes now.

ICD-9-CM 307

Special symptoms or syndromes not elsewhere classified

“This category is intended for use if the psychopathology is manifested by a single specific symptom or group of symptoms which is not part of an organic illness or other mental disorder classifiable elsewhere.”

2009 icd 9 cm 307 0 stuttering l.jpg
2009 ICD-9-CM 307.0: Stuttering ICD-9-CM

307.0 is a specific code that can be used to specify a diagnosis

307.0 excludes:

dysphasia (784.5)

lisping or lalling (307.9)

retarded development of speech (315.31-315.39)

Icd 9 cm 307 includes l.jpg
ICD-9-CM 307 includes: ICD-9-CM

Anorexia nervosa

Tics

Disorders of sleep of non-organic origin

Other and unspecified disorders of eating

Eneuresis

Encopresis

Psychalgia

A reasonable site for stuttering with onset after puberty, but not most typical presentation with onset in early childhood

  • Chapter 5

  • Code 315 Specific delays in development

  • Includes

    • 315.0 Specific reading disorder

    • 315.1 Mathematics disorder

    • 315.2 Other specific learning disabilities

    • 315.3 Developmental speech or language disorder

    • 315.34 Speech and language developmental delay to hearing loss

    • 315.39 Other

      • Developmental articulation disorder, dyslalia, phonological disorder

Proposal l.jpg
Proposal ICD-9-CM

Revise code 307.0 Stuttering with onset after puberty

Add Excludes: Childhood onset stuttering disorder (315.35) stuttering (fluency disorder) due to late effect of cerebrovascular accident (438.14)

Establish a new code at 315.35 for Childhood onset stuttering disorder

Add Excludes: stuttering (fluency disorder) due to late effect of cerebrovascular accident (438.14) stuttering with onset after puberty (307.)

11 American Speech-Language-Hearing Association


Differentiation of 307 from 315 for childhood onset stuttering disorder l.jpg
Differentiation of 307 from 315 for childhood onset stuttering disorder:

No evidence of underlying primary mental disorder in the typical case of stuttering with onset in childhood

Little evidence of effectiveness of treatments for children other than those used in speech therapy

In the past 20 years, out of approximately 250 published, peer-reviewed reports of stuttering treatments, only 1 involved psychotherapy (case study), while a few reported pharmacological treatments positioned as adjuncts to conventional speech therapy. Nearly all other reports involved conventional speech therapy procedures.

Benefits l.jpg
Benefits stuttering disorder:

  • The benefit of removing the typical presentation of stuttering from 307 is that it reinforces the ongoing public effort to disabuse individuals of the perception that stuttering is, at its core, a mental or emotional disease. This perception is so strong that all responsible information sources MUST address it.

American Speech-Language-Hearing Association


Benefits continued l.jpg
Benefits continued stuttering disorder:

  • Makes an effort to correct ongoing misperceptions encouraged by the 307 code.

    • For example, a recent survey (Altholtz & Galensky, 2004) found that almost 1/3 of social workers believed stuttering to be a “sign of an inherent character weakness” and people who stutter to have psychological problems… “Of special concern is that stuttering is listed (as a mental disorder), even though it is no longer considered a psychiatric disorder”

Benefits continued14 l.jpg
Benefits continued stuttering disorder:

  • Currently difficult to track the three distinct varieties of stuttering presentation for demographic purposes.

  • Assessment and therapeutic procedures differ for the three distinct varieties of stuttering (Bloodstein & Bernstein Ratner, 2008; Manning, 2001).
