Ongoing Research Studies:

Early Childhood Stuttering and Related Attitudes 

About This Study

This study explores the relation between the development of childhood stuttering and child and caregiver attitudes toward stuttering. We follow young children (3;0 to 5;11 years old) and their primary caregiver longitudinally to explore these variables. Participation, which lasts six months, includes in-person visits for child assessments and monthly online surveys. 


If you have a child between the ages of 3;0 and 5;11 and are interested in participating in this study, please complete this pre-interest survey! We are recruiting both children who do and do not stutter!
