Abstract

As the caseload of ethnically and culturally diverse students who stutter increases, speech-language pathologists will need to become more culturally sensitive. Many speech-language pathologists, however, indicate that they are not comfortable treating clients from diverse backgrounds who stutter. Busy school schedules may prevent speech-language pathologists from obtaining information about multicultural aspects of stuttering. The purpose of this article, therefore, is to provide speech-language pathologists with information that addresses multicultural perceptions about stuttering and suggestions for the assessment and treatment of stuttering in ethnically and culturally diverse groups.
