Abstract

Abstract This article presents one view of the past, present, and future of multicultural studies of stuttering. Historical issues are reviewed, and current issues about the multicultural or cross-cultural identification and treatment of stuttering are then considered in light of that history. It appears from this combined analysis of historical and current trends that many multicultural discussions about stuttering continue to be based on ethnocentric speculation and on ideas related to diagnosogenic theory, rather than on dependable empirical or clinical knowledge. Suggestions are provided in the form of issues to be considered and, more importantly, in the form of areas that will need considerably more research if this disorder is to be approached from a truly multicultural perspective.
