Other Research Opportunities

Many research laboratories are conducting excellent research on stuttering. Following is a list of ongoing studies that you can participate in.

The Developmental Speech Lab at Michigan State University is inviting 3- to 18-year-old children who stutter, their parent/caregiver, and their SLP to participate in a series of online surveys assessing the impact of stuttering on children and their families (Study #00001704). Children, parents, and SLPs will receive a $10.00-30.00 Amazon gift card (depending upon survey length) for each survey they complete. Please share the link below with parents of children who stutter who may be interested in participating. If you have any questions contact our lab: dsl@msu.edu or go to https://msu.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3C3iB9MZtAIbVzg.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Stuttering Lab is inviting adolescents who live anywhere in the U.S. between 12-18 years of age to participate in a virtual study regarding how young people who stutter make meaning of their social experiences. Participation includes a 30-60 minute visit on Zoom, and participants can earn up to $20 Amazon e-gift card for participating. Here is a brief video describing the study: https://youtu.be/-7X9B6QeZUo.

Researchers from the University of Minnesota are looking for adults who stutter (18 years of age and older) to participate in an online and smartphone study that examines the experience of stuttering in daily life. Participants will fill out questionnaires and then record their stuttering related experiences through text messages over three weeks. Upon request, we can provide personalized feedback. If you are interested or if you want to know more, please contact us at dailylife@umn.edu. Thank you!

The Kraft Behavior, Speech & Genetics Lab at Wayne State University is conducting exciting research to investigate the connections between developmental stuttering and co-occurring, unassociated health conditions. We are analyzing any possible links between the underlying genetics of disorders as well as looking to further understand the health-related sequela of stuttering. We are inquiring about a variety of disorders, ranging from acne to anemia. You can access the anonymous survey at the following link: https://waynestate.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_b7vRtCaUTh7nEAB. This research has been approved by the Wayne State Institutional Review Board, IRB-20-01-1731. For additional information, questions, or concerns, please contact elerose@wayne.edu.

Researchers from Wayne State University are inviting parents of individuals who stutter to participate in an online study about parental experiences of having a child who stutters and how these experiences change over time. Participants will fill out an online survey OR participate in a Zoom interview with the investigator to discuss their journey as a parent of a child who stutters. You can access the anonymous survey at the following link: https://waynestate.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_7QblS8cAoNIJSpE. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at sadaf.salehi@wayne.edu
