Global Workshops

It is a goal of the IFA to improve clinical services to people who stutter through more opportunities for clinicians to receive specialized training in how to conduct stuttering therapy. With the Global Workshop Initiative, the IFA would like to reach out to those (fluency) clinicians who might not normally be able to access international conferences or workshops designed to provide or improve clinicians’ skills in helping to treat people who stutter. There is a special focus on underserved regions and developing countries.

The IFA can organise the content and presenters of the workshops, in full consultation with the host location, and the IFA would oversee speaker travel, compensation and materials. The “local team” (it could be a national or regional professional or consumer group) would locate and provide a suitable venue, advertise to reach the appropriate attendees, handle local registration and make any additional
necessary local arrangements (but not necessarily costs) of items such as food, copying of materials, etc.

We are inviting expressions of interest from IFA members internationally. More information on how to explore the possibility of hosting an IFA-supported workshop in your location is provided in the procedure document.
