Toronto and Does your child stutter?

If your child stutters (or not!) and you can make it to Toronto, please consider taking part in this research project. It is important for us to increase our understanding of stuttering, and hopefully one day your child and everyone else can profit from improved treatments resulting from such research!

Does your child stutter? The University of Toronto Speech Fluency Laboratory needs both children who stutter and children who do not stutter to participate in a research project. If your child qualifies for the study you will receive a speech, language and hearing assessment. You will be compensated for your time.

Please email if you have a child who is:

1. Between the ages of 7 and 12 years old
2. Right handed

Benefits of the study include:

1. A speech, language and hearing screening for your child
2. A free 100 page booklet on stuttering
3. Compensation for your participation and travel
4. Help advance our knowledge of the brain and the role it plays in hearing, speech and stuttering!

Hi Tom, How are you? Congratulations on your blog. I came across it and I am impressed. Way to go!
My name is Barbara Fernandes and this is not meant to be a “ comment”, but it was the only way I found to get in touch with you.
I had an idea a few months ago to try to create an app that would be beneficial for people who stutter, it is finally available on the app store and it is called “Fluency Tracker”. I read on your iPhone post, I am VERY scared of your review but I would love to hear what you have to say about my app.
I would be glad to send you a free code so you can try it out. Fluency Tracker is not a Therapy method- it is a way for people who stutter to be able to track changes associated with fluency- such as avoidance behaviors, feelings associated with speech, etc. I have a video tutorial on

Once again, thank you very much for your time and congrats on your blog!
