In 1999, the Division 4 Task Force on Fluency Services in the Schools (members: Kristin Chmela—Illinois, Chair; Lisa Scott Trautman—Kansas; Nina Reardon—Illinois; Ellen Bennett—Texas; Marybeth Allen—Maine; Kathleen Strimple-New Mexico; and, Louise Heite-student representative, Pennsylvania) was given a charge by the Division 4 Steering Committee. Based on the 1997 reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the publication of final Part B IDEA regulations in 1999, the Steering Committee directed the Task Force to examine the impact of new IDEA regulations on the diagnosis and treatment of children who stutter (CWS) in the school setting. Further, the Task Force was charged with examining the changing role of the speech-language pathologist in serving these children.
