    Harmony for Speech

    The Canadian Stuttering Association would like to acknowledge the generous contribution of the Harmony for Speech Foundation to assist with the 2011 Conference.


    The Canadian Stuttering Association is pleased to announce the 10th National Conference taking place this August. The CSA Conferences allow a rare opportunity to meet with other people who stutter, speech-language pathologists and others for an event that is both social and educational.

    Keynote Speakers


    The keynote speakers for CSA2011 are award-winning writer Jordan Scott, former CSA National Coordinator David Block, and Elaine Saitta, Speech-Language Pathologist and person who stutters. They will be bringing their personal experience and unique outlooks as they lead the 2011 CSA Conference. Find out more about our keynote speakers here.

    2011 will be a special year for the Canadian Stuttering Association as the year will mark the organization's 20th Anniversary!

    Like past conferences, the goals of the event are two-fold: first of all, to be a learning experience featuring workshops and seminars about stuttering. Secondly, the CSA conference offers a rare chance for people who stutter across Canada and beyond, of all ages and backgrounds, to meet and socialize.

    We have seen the rise of the internet and social media change the world. As valuable as the electronic frontier can be, let's not forget the value in meeting face-to-face, speaking to each other with our voices and not our keyboards, and making the real-life, in person connections that enrich our lives.
