Delaware Stuttering Project


Developmental stuttering is a communication disorder that affects approximately three million people in the United States alone. The causes and development of stuttering are complex and not fully understood.

To gain better understanding about developmental stuttering, the Delaware Stuttering Project conducts behavioral, psychological, neuroimaging and genetic research studies.

Our long-term goal is to develop neuroscience-based treatment approaches to increase the wellbeing of people who stutter.
