Shelli Teshima spent her youth feeling held back by her stuttering, until she attended the Institute for Stuttering Treatment and Research at the University of Alberta when she was seventeen.
The Newfoundland and Labrador Stuttering Association Inc. is now a recognized non-profit in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador! Its mission is to provide advocacy and support for people who stutter and it is based in St. John's, NL. Support groups for people who stutter and family of people who stutter are planned, starting on March 21!
Good news for the Canadian Maritimes! There are now expanded resources for people who stutter in Eastern Canada, including an annual conference event to be held on November 2. The Newfoundland conference will be held in Mount Pearl by the Newfoundland and Labrador Stuttering Association (NLSA).
On behalf of the CSA Board, Advisory Board and Volunteers, I’d like to wish you and your families a very Happy, Healthy and Abundant NEW YEAR 2019!
