Sleeping baby

Are you expecting a baby, or have a newborn aged up to 16 weeks?

Would you like to help us understand the nature and cause of stuttering?

The Australian Stuttering Research Centre is conducting a study to explore the brain structure and function of babies at risk for stuttering.

We are seeking babies with and without a family of history of stuttering aged between 6 and 18 weeks of age. The babies will be scanned using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) which causes no harm to the child. Scanning will take place at the Brain and Mind Research Institute, at Camperdown.

You will be offered a gift voucher if you and your baby participate in the study. If you would like further information about this study please see the participant information statement.

If you, or someone you know, is interested, please contact Dr Robyn Lowe at the Australian Stuttering Research Centre, the University of Sydney by or call 02 9351 9061.
