Sheffield University Dysarthria Survey

Sheffield University Dysarthria Survey

Do you have difficulty with your speech? If so, researchers at the University of Sheffield are seeking the views of people with Dysarthria, a common speech difficulty, focusing on how people with dysarthria communicate emotions.

They are inviting people to complete this online survey in a bid to discover how people with Dysarthria communicate their emotions. For example, you may use a communication aid to help you communicate with others.

The research is trying to find out more about:

  • How difficult it is to properly communicate your emotions to other people
  • Which emotions you feel are important for you to convey to other people
  • What methods you tend to use to communicate your emotions to other people
  • Whether there is a difference in the way you communicate emotions to familiar and unfamiliar people

This research has ethical approval from the University of Sheffield and is conducted by Lubna Alhinti, a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Sheffield.

If you have any questions or concerns about this study, please contact Lubna by emailing: laalhinti1@sheffield.ac.uk

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
