The Spartan Stuttering Laboratory seeks to learn more about the experiences and thoughts of people who stutter

The majority of research on stuttering has focused on the observations and perceptions of listeners. We are working to change that by gathering new information directly from people who stutter.

One aspect of this research involves detailed surveys that will help us learn more about the characteristics and experiences of people who stutter.

Click on the links below to access our surveys. If you're you're not sure if you've already taken a particular survey, go ahead and click on it, and the system should tell you. You can also email us at to ask which ones you've already completed. THANK YOU!
