There is a dearth of information relative to the nature of stuttering and the likely course that it will take in its development and treatment when dealing with multicultural populations. However, of all the declared cultural groups, more information has been generated for African Americans than any other group (Anderson, 1981; Brutten & Miller, 1988; Conrad, 1985, 1987; Ford, 1986; Goldman, 1967; Leith & Mims, 1975; Nathanson, 1969; Robinson, 1992; Robinson & Crowe, 1987, 1998; Robinson, Davis, & Crowe, 2000). Despite this focus on African Americans, there still remains limited information that may be used clinically or to further the development of research activities. Specifically, concerns may be organized into two major categories: cultural differences and the lack of empirical data.
