Study: Experiences of people who stammer during Covid-19

12th May 2021

Are you aged 18+? A team at the Bristol Speech & Language Therapy Research Unit want to hear from you. They're exploring how aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic have affected people who stammer and invite you to complete an online survey.

Background & purpose

Dr Jen Chesters says, "We are a team of speech & language therapists and researchers, and we want to better understand the impact of the changes to lifestyles during Covid.

'As part of the project, we have developed a survey to explore how wearing a face mask and/or using video calls may have affected people who stammer."

How will it benefit people who stammer?

Jen adds, "We will use the survey results to develop recommendations and guidelines to provide the best support possible for stammering as we emerge from the pandemic."

What will it involve?

Access the online survey and answer the questions about your experiences. It should take no more than 15-20 minutes to complete. Your responses are confidential and you won't be asked for your name. The survey closes on 18th May 2021.

Who can take part?

You must be aged 18 and over and have a stammer to take part in the survey.
