Is there more than one individual who stutters in your family?
Would you be willing to answer a questionnaire about stuttering in your family?
A new research project involves a study of the role of inheritance in stuttering. Our project is attempting to find families that have pairs of individuals who stutter beyond childhood. The long term goal of this study is to examine genetic influences on stuttering. Participation involves answering a brief questionnaire about stuttering and your family tree. There is no cost to participate, and all information is kept confidential.
