Children who stammer

Studies Recruiting

Sanaz Arezoumandi, a student at University of Roehampton, is recruiting participants to take part in research to investigate “the obstacles which stammering adolescents may face within the educational setting as well as the worries or concerns that stammering individuals feel they may face when making the transition into further education, or employment, after they leave secondary school. Furthermore, this research is also interested in gaining an insight into the steps teachers may take in order to assist their stammering students in adjusting to the school setting and to promote their participation in class activities”.

Sanez is seeking 10 young people to be interviewed.  This will take approximately one hour. The study has ethical approval from University of Roehampton. 

Please contact Sanez directly if you would like further information:

Researchers at the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, are seeking men who stutter for a Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (TDCS) study. Volunteers should be male, right handed and aged 18-50 years.

We are interested in whether TDCS can improve speech fluency. The study lasts 2 months and involves several visits to receive TDCS and fluency training. The study also involves magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We will reimburse volunteers for their time and cover reasonable travel expenses.

If you are interested in participating in this study or have any questions please contact Jennifer Chesters on 01865 271363 or
