The primary purpose of this study was to assess whether kindergarten through twelfth grade teachers differ from people in non-teaching occupations in their reactions to people who stutter (PWS). The authors reported that teachers use a greater number and variety of information sources about PWS than the general public and that male teachers do so even more than female teachers do. Regardless of occupation, women reported reactions considered more helpful and accommodating to PWS than the reported reactions of men.
