Onslow and Packman (1999)  and Yairi and Ambrose (1999b)  exchanged Letters to the Editor of this journal regarding children’s recovery from stuttering. Their exchange clarified some important issues regarding longitudinal studies of untreated recovery, experimental studies of treated recovery, and the interpretation of findings from both. The purpose of this letter is to discuss three remaining interrelated issues that deserve more attention if some of the points of disagreement are to be resolved. The importance of these issues is that they have a direct bearing on a much broader issue: whether the natural course of children’s stuttering is toward a natural recovery or whether they need treatment.
