The purpose of this paper is to assess speech and language therapists' self-reported perceptions of their success in helping children 'completely recover from stuttering' (i.e. no longer exhibiting any overt or covert stuttering symptoms or using therapeutic strategies to modify speech and no longer being viewed by themselves or anyone else as a 'stutterer').
