I found your article very interesting and helpful for the SLP in communicating with the parents of children who stutter. I was wondering,what theory of stuttering do you support? Also, what role do you believe parents play in a child's acquisition of stuttering behaviors? For instance-do you feel that by a parent labelling a child as a "stutterer" is what causes a child to become one?
