This was a very interesting article to read! My one question is, why did the young boy stutter severely when he was considered to be a "simultaneous bilingual" in both English and French, yet, he did not experience any additional difficulty when a third language was introduced to him at school? Was it because he able to use the strategies that he learned from the Lidcombe Program and incorporate them with the learning of the third language?
