Thank you for participating! Below is a standardized questionnaire designed for the general population, used to evaluate potential long-term effects of adverse experiences. Because this test was not designed specifically for people who stutter, you may find that some of the questions seem inapplicable. Nevertheless, please answer each question to the best of your ability. The questionnaire consists of less than 40 questions and should only take a few minutes to complete. Thanks again for your time.
