Crowe Hall (1991)  has reported data that indicate that fourth and sixth graders have negative attitudes toward peers who have only one or two articulation errors. She concluded that school districts that do not provide speech-language pathology services for such children are doing them a disservice, in part, because it cannot be assumed that their errors will be tolerated better by peers when they become teenagers.
We are aware of only one study on the attitudes of teenagers toward peers who have one or two articulation errors (Silverman & Paulus, 1989). Its findings suggest that the attitude of high-school sophomores toward peers who substitute /w/or /r/tends to be negative. We recendy completed a study dealing with attitudes of college students toward peers who have a /w/for /r/substitution. The results are summarized here.
