Nick Chiasson wrote to me and asked if we could help with his research:
I am a graduate student at the University of Delaware doing research on communication attitudes and the impact on social, academic, professional, and romantic life. If you are a male who stutters between 18-30 and have approximately 15 minutes to take an online, anonymous survey, I’d be grateful. Thank you so much!

Help researchers in their research!

"The vast majority of research on stuttering has focused on the observations and perceptions of listeners. We hope to change that by gathering information directly from people who stutter. The Spartan Stuttering Lab at Michigan State University has started a series of surveys about the experiences of people who stutter. We need your help to learn more about what it is like to live with stuttering. "

Participate in a study on the experiences of people who stutter

Professor Yaruss asks for volunteers for a new research project from the Michigan State University Spartan Stuttering Lab that he and his doctoral candidate Seth Tichenor are conducting.

Information about the study, as well as a link to the consent form and the survey itself, can be found at: http://Surveys.StutteringCenter.Org.

The primary aim of the project is to learn more about the experiences of people who stutter. As you know, the vast majority of research on stuttering is based on listener observations and perceptions (including, for example, listener judgements of when stuttering has occurred, how fluent a person is, when someone is considered “recovered,” etc.). We hope to explore the validity of these judgements by gaining more information about what people who actually stutter think, feel, and experience about their stuttering.

...We hope to learn about the perspectives of a wide range of individuals who stutter around the world, including people who consider themselves to be recovered and people who have participated in variety of treatment approaches, including less traditional treatments. We are particularly interested in reaching people who are not presently involved in speech therapy or support, because their voices have been even more greatly underrepresented in the existing literature.
