What an exciting day we had on Friday! The Genetics of Stuttering team spent the day speaking to the media about the study, and put a call out for anybody who has ever experienced stuttering to volunteer for our study. We were also very lucky to be joined by study participant Sian Williams, founder of kidzucate and anti-bullying advocate, who shared her experiences of stuttering.
Here are some highlights from the day!
Prof Angela Morgan and Sian joined Jon Faine on the ABC Radio Melbourne Morning show. Listen again to the whole interview here:
Our study was also covered on SBS World News Radio:
Our appeal for volunteers was covered in the Herald Sun:
We were also featured in the University of Melbourne’s PURSUIT magazine. Prof Melanie Bahlo and Prof Angela Morgan provide insight into what we already know about the causes of stuttering, and tips on speaking with someone who stutters.
We featured on several news programs throughout the day. Check out some of the highlights below:
