The Canadian Stuttering Association is pleased to announce Kim Block as our 2017 Keynote speaker. Kim's keynote speech will address self-perception, identity and community from the perspective of a person who stutters. Using her own life experiences and observations as someone active in the self-help community for more than two decades, Kim will speak about planning goals, promoting advocacy and empowerment, and dealing with stereotypes and discrimination. How do we move forward, help each other and move from "me" to "we"?
