The King’s Speech and Stuttering

The phenomenal success of the film ‘The King’s Speech’ has propelled speech and language therapy and in particular, stuttering, into much talked about
issues. Inspired by this film, Katerina Hilari and Nicola Botting, editors of International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders (IJLCD), have put together a selection of recent IJLCD articles on the theme of stuttering. They chose only recent studies and aimed for articles that highlight the richness of stuttering research that takes place around the world.
