The Laboratory of Stuttering Science, Treatment & Advocacy Research (SSTAR Lab)

SSTAR Lab, Fall 2020

The SSTAR lab focuses on creating new treatment and advocacy alternatives for the stuttering community. Our research includes:

  • Prosthetic Stuttering Devices, using the tactile sensory modality as a means of enhancing fluency in those who stutter.
  • Empowering the stuttering community by researching stuttering disclosure techniques, and their effects on the perceptions of children and adults who stutter.
  • Collaborating with leading global professionals in resilience training for children who stutter, as a means of personal empowerment and improving quality of life
