International Project Attitudes
Toward Human Attributes
Our vision is to understand and improve public attitudes toward stuttering and other stigmatizing human conditions worldwide through objective measurement.
Our mission is to foster effective use of the Public Opinion Survey of Human Attributes (POSHA) in comparing public attitudes and reducing stigma related to negative public opinion.

From September 4-7, 2013, leading stuttering experts and researchers from around the globe met to discuss current findings and future directions in the area of public attitudes toward stuttering. Presentations covered a broad range of research in this area including epidemiology, stigma, job discrimination, and teasing and bullying. This landmark event culminated with the identification and development of working groups that will focus on further research in assessing and changing public attitudes toward stuttering.
