NSA Connects – Stuttering: An International Conversation
October 22, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
Did you know that stuttering is recognized and celebrated worldwide on October 22 each year? It is a day for members of stuttering associations around the world to educate, advocate and raise awareness of stuttering. People from around the world call it both stuttering or stammering. It’s a time to help the world better understand neurodiverse speech.
Each year, to celebrate ISAD, a month-long online conference is held in October, with people from all interests in stuttering contributing papers, audio, video or creative expression. People can interact with authors and ask questions and get answers. It’s a wonderful opportunity to engage with people globally.
Join us for Stuttering: An International Conversation featuring representatives from around the world who will talk about what’s happening in their countries, share ideas and find out how we can all collaborate to understand that stuttering is just a different way of talking.
