Canadian Stuttering Association
How to Survive Your First Conference
Written by Alexandra D’Agostino

The Canadian Stuttering Association is having a one-day conference this month in Toronto. It will feature a number of speakers giving short presentations on stuttering, from personal stories to scientific research on the causes and treatments for stuttering. For more information, check out the website. Alexandra, a CSA board member, offers advice here for people who have never attended a conference for people who stutter.

You start contemplating turning around on your heels and heading back home, when all of a sudden you hear someone experiencing a block.
