If you are a therapist or academic who is interested in stuttering, cluttering and atypical fluency disorders in children, young people and adults, or a person who stutters or clutters, the IFA is the community to which you need to belong. IFA membership is good value and by joining our ranks you will be furthering both your own development, as well as supporting our field in a truly international and collaborative forum.
You will have access to these people via the Experts section of the new IFA website, the Global Workshops that the IFA is holding internationally, the World Congresses held every three years and the Proceedings, as well as the Journal of Fluency Disorders, to which you will automatically have access as an IFA member.

You are invited to participate in a thesis study entitled “Self-efficacy and self-stigma variance between Speech Language Pathologists who stutter (SLPs-WS) and do not stutter (SLPs-WDS) toward their clinical service provision” conducted by Kodai Noguchi, in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire under the supervision of Abby Hemmerich, PhD., CCC-SLP. The primary purpose of this study is to document self-efficacy and self-stigma of SLPs-WS and SLPs-WDS related to clinical service provision. Currently limited information is available regarding clinical self-efficacy for SLPs.

There are only 2 Speech-language Pathologists (SLPs) in Rwanda for a population of over 11 million people. Using the universally accepted incidence rates of stuttering (1 percent of the population), there are 110.000 people who stutter in Rwanda, resulting in an estimate of 1 SLP for 55.000 people who stutter. Clearly access to treatment for stuttering is not available to all who need it.
The application of telehealth technologies offers effective solutions to this challenge. Distance Stuttering Therapy Program Africa (DSTPA) has been developed in Rwanda to deal with this shortfall.
