Abstract

Clinicians treating children who stutter and who speak more than one language often face unfamiliar challenges. Generally speaking, clinicians do not speak all the languages of a client, yet stuttering often occurs in all of the languages spoken by the child. Using three clinical case examples, this article describes common issues that may arise when working with bilingual children who stutter and their families. Some practical suggestions for overcoming these issues are provided.
