Thank you for writing this article. It was interesting for me to read because I was surprised how therapy treatments for one language can improve fluency in the other. I was wandering, are you treating the language pathways (wiring) when treating stuttering and that is why fluency carries over to all the languages being spoken? For example, your brain is being rewired on how it processes language and therefore once becoming fluent in one language the brain automatically follows the new route and fluency is the reaction for all languages spoken? Thanks for your comments.
