Speech-language pathologists have been interested in the phonological skills of children who stutter at least since the 1920s (McDowell, 1928). During the past decade, however, interest in this complex topic has increased dramatically. Many investigators have reported that children who stutter are far more likely to have a phonological disorder than their peers who do not stutter (Bloodstein, 1995; Louko, 1995; Louko, Conture, & Edwards, 1999; Louko, Edwards, & Conture, 1990; St. Louis & Hinzman, 1988; St. Louis, Murray, & Ashworth, 1991; Tetnowski, 1998; Wolk, Edwards, & Conture, 1993; Yaruss & Conture, 1996; Yaruss, LaSalle, & Conture, 1998). Prevalence estimates of phonological disorders in children not identified as having a stuttering problem range from 2% to 13% (Shriberg, Tomblin, & McSweeny, 1999). In contrast, it is commonly reported that 30%–40% of children who stutter have a co-occurring phonological disorder (Bernstein Ratner, 1995; Conture, 2001; Conture, Louko, & Edwards, 1993; Louko, 1995; Melnick & Conture, 2000; Wolk, 1998; Wolk, Blomgren, & Smith, 2000).
