This is a joint event of the above mentioned Faculty and the Croatian SLPs’ Association, supported by the City of Zagreb. SLPs from different work surroundings will report results from the online survey in which SLPs in Croatia were asked to state how many stuttering clients they have during the year, which therapies they apply and which problems they face in delivering therapy. There will be a discussion about best solutions to solve those problems with the representatives of the City of Zagreb. In the afternoon, PWS, parents and SLPs will share their stories and discuss the effectiveness of therapies. There are about 80 SLPs registered for this event.

The they after, Dr. Suzana Jelčić Jakšić will be a guest in the morning program of the local TV channel for Zagreb area, Z1, where she will introduce stuttering and give a report from the Symposium.
