I enjoyed reading your article because I think bilingualism is very important and a great opportunity for any individual.I have learned that children have an easier time learning or making corrections to a second language if they are proficient in their first language. The article said that the children were bilingual but did not mention at what proficiency in each langauge. Before therapy implementation, did you assess the children's proficiency in both languages? If so, do you think proficiency in a language can impact the child's ability to recover from stuttering in that particular language?
