Help Researchers Better Understand Stuttering

The Spartan Stuttering Lab at Michigan State University is beginning a series of studies aimed at exploring stuttering from the perspective of people who actually stutter. The first study is designed to learn what people who stutter experience during a stuttering moment.

Most research in this area has been from the listener’s viewpoint. Dr. J. Scott Yaruss and Seth Tichenor believe it’s time we learn about stuttering from people who do the stuttering.

If you stutter and are interested in participating in this study, please click here to be directed to a website that describes the survey in more detail.

The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete and your participation will help clinicians, researchers, and other people who stutter better understand the experience of stuttering.

If you have questions, please email Seth Tichenor at Also, please share the survey link with other people who stutter.

Just a friendly reminder now that the cooler weather brings us back to our computers. 😉 This is our chance to speak our minds for the whole world to hear. It would be great to read, hear and watch stories from people who stuttering, but also clinicians, parents, siblings, teachers, grandparents, friends etc. Speak your minds through a paper, a song, a drawing, a poem, a video, or in whatever way you want to share. We're looking forward to your submission. 🙂 (We have extended the deadline for those of you who need the weekend to finalize your paper. Papers coming in after 3 September will not be included in this year's conference.)
