ISAD 2012

INTERNATIONAL STUTTERING AWARENESS DAY OCTOBER 22ND

Since 1998, every year on October 22 we celebrate ISAD. Isn’t this an excellent joint project between ISA, IFA, ASHA Division 4 and ELSA? Haven’t we already accomplished a lot together?

Self-help groups and the national associations become very active and creative when International Stuttering Awareness Day approaches. The Stuttering Homepage is the home of the regular online conferences on stuttering every October 1 to 22. There is big media coverage in many countries. People who stutter from self-help groups as well as professionals are interviewed for TV and newspapers. Excellent projects, interesting discussions and parties occur around the World around October 22. It is so gratifying to see how the national associations use this Day for working and celebrating. Isn’t International Stuttering Awareness Day an excellent model for further future cooperation of the stuttering community together with professionals.

 

6th PSA Annual Conference about Stuttering: “Breaking Silences, Sharing Responsibilities”

On October 20th, the Portugese stuttering association AGP is going to organize their 6th PSA annual conference about stuttering. It is a small conference, usually attended by 100 participants, composed mostly of PWS and their families, under graduated students in stuttering therapy and professional speech therapists. This year the conference is held under the title “breaking silences, sharing responsibilities”.

Daniel: This year we are especially interested in discussing, on one hand, some gender related issues concerning stuttering and, on the other, our recent experiences with self-help groups and possible complementary relations between them and stuttering therapy. In the roundtable discussions we have PWS speaking and sharing their experiences. We have also invited two experts of the European Clinical Specialization Course in Fluency Disorders, Joseph Agius and Margaret Leahy (margaret by videoconference), to lecturer about some new stuttering therapy approaches.
