Elementary school students’ perceptions of stuttering: A mixed model approach

The authors report that past research studies have focused on perceptions of stuttering by various age groups and only a few have examined how children react to a peer who stutters, and all of these studies used a quantitative analysis but only one included a qualitative analysis of elementary school age children’s responses to stuttering. This study was conducted to further explore the perceptions of elementary school students toward a peer who stutters using both quantitative and qualitative analyses of three levels of stuttering.
