The purpose of this panel discussion was to consider the importance of collaboration between and among professionals from different fields and with different backgrounds in the treatment and research of stuttering. There are many reasons that collaboration is useful and important. This manuscript summarizes and highlights some of the ways collaboration can enhance clinical practice in stuttering and to suggest ways clinicians can collaborate with other professionals in their attempts to improve the lives of people who stutter.
