The Thirteenth International Stuttering Awareness Day Online Conference will be live from October 1st to the 22nd. It will be accessible from a link from the Stuttering Homepage! The theme of the conference is People Who Stutter, Inspire. Tune in to read new and original essays about stuttering, and participate in an online discussion.
The Stuttering Home Page, created by Judith Maginnis Kuster and maintained at Minnesota State University, is dedicated to providing information about stuttering for both consumers and professionals who work with people who stutter.
Speech pathologists and people who stutter from around the world have participated in this conference. Some essays are presented in video format. Speech pathologist and CSA member Carla Di Domenicantonio and CSA board member Lisa Wilder collaborated on one of the on-line papers about national support groups. Also author and CSA member Karen Hollett discusses her recent book for children about a child who stutters.
