The Guiding Principles of Our Research

Funded by the NIH, and several state, national, and international foundations, our research positively impacts the daily life of children, teens, and adults who stutter, and their loved ones. Our treatment was developed and refined by listening to the distinct lived experiences of the individuals who stutter we serve worldwide, and generating new knowledge regarding the etiology, development, and best practice.
