St. John's University Communication Disorders Department is conducting this survey to learn what people who stutter think about pseudostuttering assignments typically performed in CSD programs. Pseudostuttering is the deliberate production of stuttering speech sometimes used in therapy to teach a patient to control a stutter. A pseudostuttering assignment involves students simulating a stutter and engaging with members of the public using pseudostuttering. For example, asking directions.
If you are 18 years of age or over and a Person Who Stutters, you can complete the survey. It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. The questions are Likert-scale ratings and closed and open-ended. Participation is completely voluntary and anonymous, and no one will be able to identify you or your responses. You are free to decline to answer any questions or withdraw from the study at any time. There is no direct benefit for participating in this study. This survey may engender an emotional reaction.
