This paper reports on a 2-year project that attempted to describe Factors related to conducting stuttering therapy in public school settings. Twenty elementary school children from two socioeconomic groups and representing a wide range of stuttering severity were seen each year by a specialist in stuttering. Therapy was scheduled following the traditional, itinerant model (Asha, 1984). A stutter fluently approach (Van Riper, 1973) was used the first year and a speak fluently approach (Ryan & Van Kirk, 1978) was used the second. Attendance and program records were kept so that variables affecting service delivery could be identified. Therapy results, scheduling difficulties, and cultural considerations in conducting stuttering therapy with inner-city Mexican-American children are presented.
