The chair of the Swedish Stuttering Association, Stamningsförbundet, Simon Klein, represented people with disabilities, incl people who stutter, at the European Parliament of People with Disabilities, EDDP, in Brussels 6th of December. All speakers were given 2 minutes, but Simon Klein asked for, and was given, 2,5 min because of stuttering needing more time. Unfortunately others exceeded their time slots, so by the time Simon was about to speak, the meeting was abruptly ended. Simon however proudly fulfilled his assignment and videotaped his speech, which will be sent to all delegates, with an accompanying letter to those in charge of the meeting.

We can now confirm that our next keynote speaker for One World, Many Voices: Science and Community in Hiroshima, Japan July 2018 will be Dr. Koichi Mori, M.D., Ph. D.

Dr. Mori’s keynote speech will focus on the use of cognitive behavioral therapy with adults and adolescents who stutter in a group therapy setting. This interesting keynote will offer an insight into therapy options for people who stutter in Japan, and will increase awareness of the use of CBT with people who stutter both in Japan and internationally. We anticipate this will lead to interesting debate between delegates of all nationalities regarding the availability of different approaches to living with stuttering across the globe and inspire new ways of thinking about, working and living with stuttering in people’s own lives.

More information about Dr. Mori, and about the Joint World Congress, can be found on our website at www.jointworldcongress.org
