Abstract Research has demonstrated that college professors rate hypothetical students who stutter more negatively than college students who do not stutter. To date, no studies have explored perceptions when observing actual students who stutter. Furthermore, self-disclosure has been proven to influence listener perception. The primary purpose of the present study is to investigate the role self-disclosure has on the perception of college professors.
