IFA Statement on Social Anxiety Disorder and Stuttering

The IFA acknowledges that stuttering may be accompanied by social anxiety. However, we have not endorsed any policy statement requiring a standard screening for social anxiety disorders. Moreover, it has no intention to support any change in the current ICD/DSM nomenclature for the most typical presentation of fluency disorder, childhood onset fluency disorder (stuttering).

Joe Fulcher 1928 – 2017

Joe FulcherThe International Fluency Association and the community it represents lost a friend and an advocate when Joe Fulcher passed away on 6th October 2017.

Joe served the Stuttering Foundation of America over many years and in many ways. Married to Jane Fraser, President of the SFA, Joe employed his extensive financial and legal knowledge and skills to further the work of the organisation, ensuring the highest standards of governance throughout.

Joe was an engaging and gracious gentleman who cared deeply about the community of children and adults who stutter and he worked tirelessly alongside Jane for thirty years to improve the lives of those who stutter.

The Stuttering Foundation has always been an active supporter of the IFA, sponsoring a post conference workshop at the last World Congress in Lisbon. We value our partnership as we strive for the same goals.

Joe will be deeply missed by so many and we feel privileged to have known and worked alongside him.
