Looking forward to this workshop at the Joint World Congress: "Interactive exchange for young people who stutter: The We-Stutter-Project workshop"

The We-Stutter-Project is a self-help group for young people who stutter (PWS) in Japan. The principal policies of the We-Stutter-Project are acceptance and respect for all ideas, beliefs, and principles of PWS. We propose a workshop in which we aim to promote friendships among delegates from around the world. The workshop will replicate the regular activities conducted by the group, namely, self-introduction by means of an interactive game and discussions where we set some themes. We aim to provide an atmosphere in which delegates feel comfortable in the space.

Important information about the Joint World Congress:

Early bird registration closes on May 31st. At that time, registration fees will go from approximately $280 to 40,000 yen (approximately $370) for a 4-day pass, and 14,000 yen (approximately $130) for a 1-day pass.

We encourage you all to take advantage of the lower price, and to register before the 31st.

For example: "Meeting the Needs of People Who Stutter: Seeing, Feeling, and Experiencing Counseling Approaches" will be presented by Heather Salvo, Alison LaJuett and Scott Palasik. The purpose of this presentation is to provide SLPs and PWS with therapeutic applications to address thoughts and feelings related to stuttering, which can be applied both by the individual and clinician.

ISAD is celebrated on October the 22nd each year, and communities of PWS world wide are encouraged to plan activities directed towards raising awareness of stuttering and empowering PWS and their families.

The theme of the Conference this year is "Speak Your Mind". Please take a look at the ISAD 2018 website for more information on the theme, how to submit a paper, and how to participate in the conference. We welcome submissions from not only people who stutter (PWS) and professionals (SLPs/SLTs), but also from those who are the partners, parents, children, teachers, colleagues and other people who support PWS.
