Capacity Building

ELSA is a member of the European Disability Forum (EDF).  The EDF is a Brussels based umbrella disability organisation that has good contacts with the European Commission (EC).

The EC has a small project called "Capacity Building" and 5 countries have been chosen to participate in this programme following presentations by their National Disability Councils.
The countries are Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Iceland and Portugal.
The project will provide funding to allow disability organisations in these countries to work together to raise awareness of the their subject. This includes stuttering associations.

Edwin J Farr, Chair of the European League of Stuttering Associations has been liaising with the EDF and has nominated a representative of the stuttering associations from the 5 countries.
The capacity building will be in the form of seminars and conferences to raise awareness of various disabilities including stuttering during the autumn of 2012.

INTERNATIONAL STUTTERING AWARENESS DAY OCTOBER 22ND

Since 1998, every year on October 22 we celebrate ISAD. Isn’t this an excellent joint project between ISA, IFA, ASHA Division 4 and ELSA? Haven’t we already accomplished a lot together?

Self-help groups and the national associations become very active and creative when International Stuttering Awareness Day approaches. The Stuttering Homepage is the home of the regular online conferences on stuttering every October 1 to 22. There is big media coverage in many countries. People who stutter from self-help groups as well as professionals are interviewed for TV and newspapers. Excellent projects, interesting discussions and parties occur around the World around October 22. It is so gratifying to see how the national associations use this Day for working and celebrating. Isn’t International Stuttering Awareness Day an excellent model for further future cooperation of the stuttering community together with professionals.
