International Stuttering Awareness Day

Wrote on 01/10/09 by Kurt Eggers

International Stuttering Awareness Day (October 22) began in 1998, spear-headed by Michael Sugarman, 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.
The 2009 online conference (the twelfth by now) opens October 1st and  is designed for people who stutter, their families and employers, the professionals who work with them, students in training and their instructors.
