In the context of the Joint World Congress, a survey has been created with the purpose of determining areas of research that are of importance to the community of people affected by stuttering and cluttering. This community includes people who stutter or clutter, their families, researchers, and clinicians. The results of this survey will be presented at the Joint World Congress in Hiroshima, on July 14th.
The survey was created by Professor Nan Bernstein Ratner of the University of Maryland department of Hearing and Speech Sciences, in conjunction with representatives from the International Cluttering Association (ICA) and the International Stuttering Association (ISA).
IFA members are invited to nominate an individual for one or another of the International Fluency Association Awards.
The nominations are due by April 15th midnight.
The IFA is pleased to announce the availability of the Proceedings of the Fourth World Congress of Fluency Disorders. IFA members have access to over 500 pages and 80 articles, fully searchable and linked to a table of contents.
The 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.

The Congress Organising Team is delighted to share the logo for the One World, Many Voices: Science and Community World Congress in Hiroshima 2018. Our wonderful graphic designer Victor Guzman has managed to coordinate colours associated with the Japanese flag alongside a logo that perfectly depicts the collaboration between the ICA, IFA and ISA. Another step forward in our plans, and with just over a year to go to the congress itself, we're all getting very excited to hold our first shared congress in Asia... we hope you are too! #owmv2018
