Mission & Goals

IFA RESEARCH AND PUBLICATION COMMITTEE: Mission & Goals

Our mission is to improve understanding and treatment of fluency disorders by promoting research, supporting researchers and connecting them with all stakeholders.

The actionable goals have been compiled through feedback from different stakeholders and will be periodically reviewed. The committee’s role is to achieve the goals specifically related to IFA activities, and to decide on which other goals that they wish to work towards.
