The 2019 NSA Research Symposium is titled: Stuttering: Perspectives on Disability, Diversity and Culture. Our Research Symposium precedes the annual NSA Conference and is attended by researchers and clinicians who specialize in stuttering, as well as some adults who stutter. We are turning to professionals outside of our own discipline this year to address the themes of: models of disability; cultural and literary perspectives on stuttering; and neurodiversity. We will apply concepts presented from keynote speakers in our small group discussions to inform future research questions and evaluate our current clinical outcomes.

Our 2-day Research Symposium is held in conjunction with our 36th Annual Conference in Fort Lauderdale, FL, so mark your calendars for July 2nd & 3rd, and join us for presentations from cutting-edge researchers and opportunities for small group discussion, then stick around July 3-7 for the Annual Conference itself. This symposium offers approximately 1.0 ASHA-approved CEU’s, in addition to those offered during the Annual Conference.  Save, print, and share our 2019 Research Symposium flyer with your colleagues, then save money and register for both!
