Our study “Current Practices of Stuttering Services in School-Setting: A Mixed-Method Investigation” explores the educational and clinical preparedness of school-based speech-language pathologists working with students who stutter. This study was approved by the IRB committee at Fort Hays State University (Reference number 23-0058). Our goal is to bring awareness to this area in our field of study, as stuttering is often ranked as the least competent area to assess/treat by practicing SLPs.

All school-based SLPs are qualified for participation. Participants are asked to complete an online survey which may take an average time of 15-20 minutes. The survey asks questions regarding current practices on stuttering services in school settings regarding caseload, assessment, treatment, collaboration, continued education, and service delivery.

All submissions received from eligible participants will be entered in a random drawing to win one of ten $100 gift cards.

We greatly appreciate everyone’s participation in our study, thank you!
