About the lab

The Stuttering and Linguistic Processing lab (SLPlab) is housed in UT Austin’s Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences, in the Moody College of Communication. Our research aims to improve our understanding of how stuttering develops and persists into adulthood and translate this knowledge to advance evidence-based practices for stuttering. Specifically, we are interested in investigating the linguistic and cognitive factors that contribute to stuttered speech using eye-tracking techniques, exploring the manifestation of stuttering in bilingual and multilingual speakers, and improving evidence-based practices in the assessment and treatment of stuttering.  

Our work would not be possible without the generous help of our participants, students, clinicians, and volunteers.
