Abstract

The current study aims to explore the relationship between teacher knowledge about stuttering and the perceptions of students who stutter. Previous research has found a strong relationship between what individuals know about stuttering and their attitudes about people who stutter (Lass, Ruscello, Pannbacker, Schmitt, Kiser, Mussa, & Lockhart, 1994). Teachers play an imperative part in a child’s educational journey, and research has shown that stuttering is associated with negative personality traits (Lass, Ruscello, Schmitt, Pannbacker, Orlando, Dean, Ruziska, & Bradshaw, 1992). The Alabama Stuttering Knowledge (Crowe & Cooper, 1977) and the Teacher Attitudes About Stuttering (Crowe & Walton, 1981) were administered to teachers in the Salem-Keizer school district to explore this topic. Data will be analyzed using correlational methods. Future directions, implications, and limitations will be discussed.
