The 7th World Congress of Fluency Disorders (WCFD) is dedicated to exploring stuttering and its subtypes in the light of new information that has emerged from recent research. The aim of the congress is to discuss the impact this has on diagnostic and assessment procedures, treatments and professional education. Held once every three years the WCFD is the official conference of the International Fluency Association (IFA). The goal of the 2012 congress is to provide everyone attending with an opportunity to learn about the latest theories, research and therapies within the field and to encourage the dissemination of new ideas and methodologies. The open discussion format of the meeting will broaden our collective understanding and will hopefully lead to better treatment options for our clients both old and young. Special sessions will be organized for cluttering, phonetics and linguistics. There will also be sessions and workshops available for PWS/Cs to present their topics of interest.
