2003 IFA Congress: Montreal, Canada


It is with great pleasure that we present the Proceedings of the Fourth World Congress on Fluency Disorders. We believe that the articles in the Proceedings provide a microcosm of the global interest in stuttering and disorders of fluency. The range of topics is truly inspiring - there are treatment research studies and descriptive reports of various approaches to interventions; there are scientific reports of physiological and neurophysiological research, including brain imaging; there are linguistic studies; there are studies of differences in both stuttering and attitudes to stuttering across culturally and linguistically diverse populations; there are well developed theoretical reports on the nature and cause of stuttering; and there are reports reflecting the growing importance and influence of self-help and advocacy groups around the globe.
