   Children who Stutter and Children who Do Not Stutter Needed for Research Study
Stacy Wagovich, Ph.D., University of Missouri-Columbia, is currently recruiting children, ages 3-6, to participate in a study on cognition, language development, and stuttering. We are looking for both children who stutter and children who do not stutter, who are typically developing and speak English as their first language. Children and their parents attend two sessions, about 90 minutes in length.  Sessions are scheduled at the parents’ convenience and can be held either in Columbia or St. Louis. Contact Dr. Wagovich at 882-2969 or fluency@missouri.edu for more information. Parents will be compensated for their time.
