The ancient Moravian city of Brno in the Czech Republic was the setting for an exciting workshop focusing on stuttering in the days leading up to International Stuttering Awareness Day (ISAD).
The 10th annual conference of the Speech Therapists Association of the Czech Republic was held Friday, Oct. 19, 2012.
Morning presentations included Jane Fraser speaking about the Stuttering Foundation history and how products have been and continue to be developed to help those who stutter.  She was followed by Frances Cook discussing principles and practice of therapy at the Michael Palin Centre for Stammering Children. Heather Grossman of AIS presented on desensitization and voluntary stuttering; she was followed by Mitchell Trichon who talked about self-help activities and their role in managing stuttering.
“We were excited to see that Stuttering Foundation books, translated into Czech by Elisabeth Peutelschmiedova, were on hand,” said Fraser. The Foundation also donated materials — DVDs, books, and brochures — to share with local therapists. 
Local hosts, led by Dr. Ilona Kejklickova, announced that this was the 10th anniversary of their conference. They also announced the founding  of their new organization, the Czech Association for Stuttering.
