Conference Day 2015 Schedule

ISA is pleased to announce the schedule for Conference Day 2015 taking place on Saturday April 18th.  Registration begins at 9.30 a.m.  A full schedule is presented below. 

Our day ‘caint gan eagla’ meaning ‘talk without fear’. is a reminder that no one needs to fear speaking – including those who stammer.  The day is open to everyone connected by stammering including adults who stammer, young people who stammer, and parents of those who stammer.

Attendance is FREE to ISA members.  If you’re not a member, you can join ISA on the day for €20.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
