Hi, my name is Katherine and I have Lee Caggiano as a professor for a fluency disorders class at New York University. I would like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed both articles. Rosalee: I was wondering, what is the educational background for both parents of the five year old client? In addition, since the child responded so well to the praise for stutter-free speech, do you think he was initially under a great deal of communicative pressure before he began therapy? Brian: Your article encourages me to pursue a career with bilingual clients even though I only speak one language fluently. Although your study found that therapy in one language helps to increase fluency in both spoken languages, did you do anything differently during therapy with the bilingual clients as opposed to the monolingual clients?
