Some Observations of Bilingualism and Stuttering

More than half of the world’s population is bilingual. Consequently, speech-language pathologists
(SLPs) are now encountering clients who are bilingual with increasing frequency. The clinical
management of bilingual speakers with communication disorders presents a number of challenges
to the SLP. The focus of this presentation is to offer some insight as to the relationship between
stuttering and bilingualism. Specifically, results will be presented from a series of studies examining (1) the fluency and language behavior of monolingual and bilingual speakers who stutter, (2) hemispheric asymmetry in monolingual and bilinguals who stutter, and (3) the role of language familiarity in the assessment of stuttering in bilingual speakers.
