ISAD online conference 2010: 'People who Stutter, Inspire!'
The 2010 conference is now open and freely available on the Stuttering Homepage at www.mnsu.edu/comdis/isad13/isadcon13.html from 1st to 22nd October.
The conference is a once-a-year opportunity to read a wide range of articles (including some audio and video) from across the world and send questions to the authors.
Papers cover a wide variety of topics, and are written by people who stammer and professionals. Each paper has a threaded discussion page for comments and questions, and authors of the papers can respond.
There is also a section called The Professor Is In, to ask questions about stammering to a group of university professors.
