As you may know, International Stuttering Awareness Day (ISAD) is later this month, on October 22, 2012. ISAD began in 1998, and was spear-headed by Michael Sugarman, Oakland, California. ISAD recognizes the growing alliance between speech-language professionals and consumers, who are learning from each other and working together to share, give support, and educate one another and the general public on the impact that stuttering has on individuals’ lives.

Online conferences, organized by Judy Kuster, have been an integral part of International Stuttering Awareness Day since its inception. You can participate in the online conference by clicking on the link at the top of the Stuttering Homepage until October 22, 2012. (www.stutteringhomepage.com).
