The Fluency Test Committee was established by the International Fluency Association's (IFA) Board of Directors in 1992 with the charge to develop a test of fluency that would be useful to clinicians and researchers both within and beyond the IFA membership. From the beginning, there has been consensus that “fluency” includes much more than the presence or absence of disfluency or stuttering. Accordingly, one of the secondary goals of the committee was to bridge the gaps between the use of the term fluency in the area of stuttering and in other disciplines that use that term, such as aphasia, dysarthria, and foreign language learning. The intent was to develop a test that was applicable to these and perhaps other fields as well. Moreover, it was hoped that any test that would be developed would be in a form that could be translated to other languages with relative ease to foster its use among IFA members worldwide.
