PhD – Stammering and Mental Health
Author: TBD Year: 2018/19
We are delighted to be supporting speech and language therapist, Ria Bernard as she undertakes a PhD study investigating the relationship between stammering and anxiety and depression in children. This three-year research project supervised by University College London, will include a systematic review of existing literature, a national questionnaire and a comparative study of children who stammer, children with a language disorder and non-stammering children.
In addition to her PhD studies, Ria is also working for the Charity one day a week and has been undertaking a “Freedom of Information” research project to map the different levels of support available for children who stammer in different parts of the UK.

The Charity were able to fund Ria’s studies through funding from our long term supporters ‘The Woodroffe Benton Foundation’ in partnership with University College London
