MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Jan. 18, 2013) — Stuttering Foundation president Jane Fraser had the following comment about last night's American Idol show featuring Lazaro Arbos, a contestant who stutters:
The 1999 Malcolm Faser Award, which honors excellence in the field of fluency, has been presnted by the Stuttering Founation of America to Oliver Bloodstein, a speech-language pathologist. Bloodstein is a Professor Emeritus of Speech at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York and has served on the school's faculty for almost 50 years.
The Stuttering Foundation announced its 2012 Awards for Excellence in Journalism during May. “Journalists in a variety of settings have done an outstanding job of focusing on stuttering during the past year,” said Jane Fraser, president of the 65-year-old nonprofit foundation. “We are seeing a significant shift in how we reach people - not only through newspapers and columnists but also through websites and blogs. We are particularly excited about increased outreach in Canada and within the Spanish speaking community.”
- Evidence-Based Practice and Practice-Based Evidence: Closing the GapDiscussions about evidence-based practice often culminate in claims that there is one best approach to treatment of a particular type of client, or that we lack appropriate evidence or that clinicians lack access to what evidence we have.
Kirk and John Tarver and their Memphis-based Shelby Railroad Services Inc. raised an astonishing $11,000 for the Memphis-based Stuttering Foundation.
