This study sought to determine the appropriateness of the Andrews and Cutler (1974) modification of Erickson's (1969) S-scale to women who stutter. This tool, apparently valuable both in the description of stuttering symptomatology and in the prediction of therapy outcome, had been developed to differentiate male stutterers from male nonstutterers. The modification of the S-scale was administered to 10 female stutterers, 10 female nonstutterers, and 10 male stutterers. S-scores were found not only to differentiate female stutterers from female nonstutterers but also female stutterers from male stutterers. For both female and male stutterers, attitudes toward communication were independent of frequency of disfluency. Clinical implications of these findings are considered.
