The Harmonize for Speech Barbershop
Quartet performs at the 2018 CSA Conference Once again, the Canadian Stuttering Association is honoured and grateful to be assisted with a $2,000 grant from Harmonize for Speech, a privately-funded organization in Ontario that supports speech related projects and initiatives. These funds will go towards producing the annual conference, which takes place October 19, 2019.
Researchers at McGill University are looking at the music and language habits of people who stutter, and asking for participants in an online survey. It includes questions about your stuttering, musical training, language use/proficiency, therapeutic and diagnostic history.
The Speech Fluency Lab, University of Toronto, is currently conducting a study of movement behaviour in children and adults who do and do not stutter. Through this research, they aim to better understand the nature of stuttering in both children and adults, and ultimately improve treatment.
ISTAR is sponsoring a free screening of "When I Stutter" Sunday, June 23rd, at 2:00 at the Globe theatre in Calgary. Calgary CSA support group leaders Rhea, Achalla and Ana will also be in attendance, so that would be a great opportunity for people to meet them!
