Jing, you wrote: If a child is newly entered into the school system, presents with stuttering and English is their second language of which the child primarily uses the native language and has minimal knowledge and usage of the English language, how would you begin intervention in this type of situation? - - - - - I would begin working with the child in English, I would work closely with an English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) teacher if one was in the school, and/or I would try to find a bilingual person in the community that I could train to interpret and work with me. I once trained someone to help me do a bilingual communication evaluation in Thai and English. - BH
