- Workplace Experiences of People Who Stutter Survey - a study conducted by Professor Marshall Rice of the Schulic School of Business at York University in Toronto, Canada. (This is a research study and is dated so if you are interested and qualify, please respond soon - posted November 11, 2005)
- The University of Maryland is currently seeking participants for a study on bilingual stuttering. Specifically, we are interested in hearing from speech-language pathologists and/or parents who have children who stutter aged 3-10 years of age who are fluent bilingual speakers of English and Mandarin. Such children should not have additional communication disorders. We will ask parents or therapists to gather a short audio and/or videotape of the child in spontaneous conversation and reviewing a short wordless book after obtaining consent for participation. If parents of such children can be directed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com we will forward appropriate consent forms and materials to complete this study, which can be completed anywhere in the world and does not require a visit to our campus. Children will also be provided with a small token gift for participation. (This is a research study and is dated so if you are interested and qualify, please respond soon - posted November 8, 2005)
- Brain Activation During Developmental Speech Production and Speech Perception - a clinical research study by the Laryngeal and Speech Section at NINDS/NIH, recruiting new patients.
- Invitation to participate in on-going research about stuttering from East Carolina University's Stuttering Research Laboratory.
- "The University of Maryland is interested in receiving audio or video samples of individuals who stutter and who speak more than one language. We will provide instructions for obtaining samples from the same speaker speaking in their different languages (for example, some speech in English and speech on a similar topic in German or French). We will also supply you with a wordless book that we would like the speaker to summarize in different languages. If you are interested in contributing data to this cross-linguistic study of stuttering, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, a questionnaire and a participant consent form.
