Since 1998, every year on October 22 we celebrate International Stuttering Awareness Day (ISAD).
The self-help groups and the national associations become very active and creative when International Stuttering Awareness Day approaches.
ISAD also includes an online conference, running annually from October 1 to 22 each year, targeted at people with an interest in stuttering as well as speech-language pathologists and their clients. The conferences, held every year since 1998, are all still available online.
It also includes public awareness events, a media campaign, educational activities and online resources.
