International Stuttering Awareness Day: Did I miss it?

International Stuttering Awareness Day: Did I miss it?

NO! You didn't "miss it!" Don't think of ISAD as a "day." Think of it as an opportunity to make a difference—no matter what the calendar says! 

In the stuttering community, we take the whole week (truthfully the month of October) to spread awareness about stuttering! (Then we will do the same thing in May during Better Hearing and Speech Month and National Stuttering Awareness Week.)

So, if you haven't had the chance to plan something to celebrate 2018 ISAD, don't despair! Head on over to our Facebook page for links and ideas to keep the advocacy and awareness spirit going. 

We have a lot of work to do, so take every opportunity!  Right now, Scott Yaruss is with Virginia Yaruss while presenting in Hong Kong, and Nina Reeves is pseudo-stuttering for the whole day on her way back from Sonoma County after a presentation at the SELPA there. Lee Reeves is joining in the fun by being her videographer to catch some of the experiences. We are always on a stuttering adventure of some sort here at Stuttering Therapy Resources! 

Before you go, don't forget to read our blog entries related to many of your frequently asked questions about stuttering and stuttering therapy.

FINALLY, we have an exciting new resources that is coming soon! More about that in our next post! :)
