New stammering research study

Gemma Connolly, a final year speech and language therapy student in NUI Galway, is carrying out a research study which involves talking to adults who stammer about their memories of making friends.

What will be involved?

Here’s what Gemma told Irish Stammering Association about her project:

“If you agree to take part in the study, you and I will meet for an “interview/conversation” where I will ask you questions about your life as a person who stammers and experiences you have had making friends. This should last between 30 minutes to one hour at the most. With your permission, I will audio record the conversation so that I will be able to write out the details of it afterwards (all identifying information will be removed, making it anonymous).”

Examples of questions:

What are your memories of your first friends in school?

And do you remember having a stammer at this time?

As you have grown up, has having a stammer impacted on your confidence when talking to new people and forming friendships?

Gemma is looking to talk to people aged 21 and older, and who speak English as a first language. If you are interested in taking

part, please send Gemma an email on g.nichonghoile1@nuigalway.ie and she will send you on the information pack about the study.
