Speech Disfluencies in Bilingual Speakers
In this seventy-five minute presentation, Selma Saad Merouwe, SLP, ECSF, of Saint Joseph University, Beirut, discusses new research in bilingual people who stutter. Our insight into the frequency and types of the disfluencies of bilingual children who do, and do not stutter, is limited because research has primarily focused on monolinguals. Recently, many studies have been conducted that include children with different language profiles to better understand the interlinguistic characteristics that can distinguish bilingual children who do and do not stutter from their monolingual peers. Results inform the accurate clinical identification of stuttering in bilinguals. This presentation includes the theoretical background related to this specific topic, and some preliminary findings of a research project carried out in Lebanon.
