The purpose of this study was to compare two methodologies for the study of pre- valence of stuttering in the elementary school students: the teachers’ evaluations and children’s self-reports of their stuttering problems. Questionnaires were used to collect the data, concerning the existence, severity, and characteristcs of stuttering. Forty teachers participated in evaluating 1270 students and 289 children each of the second, fourth and sixth grade answered the questionnaire about themselves. The teachers’ evaluations and students’ self-reports were compared in terms of sex, grade, and school. In adiition, the communication attitudes of the children were compared between children who were not evaulated as stutterers and the children judged stutterers by the teachers. The results of the current study suggested that the prevalence of stuttering could change depending on the specific survey method. The results were discussed in terms of the characteristics of the two methods, that is, teachers’ evaluation and children’s self-report.
