International Stuttering Awareness Day Online Conference, 1999

Judith Maginnis Kuster, chair of this online conference, and Michael Sugarman, chair of International Stuttering Awareness Day

International Stuttering Awareness Day 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. Welcome to the second International Online Conference on Stuttering. Beginning October 1, 1999 there were 3 panels, 28 invited papers and 8 poster sessions of research updates linked below for you to read at your leisure. There is also a section - "The Professor is In" - where you could ask questions of several professionals. The contributions in this conference reflect professional and consumer interests about stuttering and are presented by over 60 individuals representing 19 different countries on 5 different continents. Each paper also had a threaded discussion page for comments and questions. By October 22, 1999, International Stuttering Awareness Day, the authors of the papers responded as they wished. The comments and questions are still linked to the papers although no additional comments/questions are possible since the conference has concluded. Contributors to the conference are solely responsible for the information they provide. We cannot be responsible for nor can we attest to the accuracy or efficacy of the information others provide. The author's papers are permanently archived on the Stuttering Home Page for you to read at any time. ( Other ISAD99 information and events are available here.

Instructions - please read! The papers are linked to the button in the square to the left. After you have opened the paper, the box around the button will turn green to remind you that you've already opened that paper.
