11th Oxford Dysfluency Conference Challenge and Change
20-23 September 2017 | St Catherine’s College, Oxford, UK
The 11th Oxford Dysfluency Conference (ODC), under the theme ‘Challenge and Change’, is to be held at St Catherine’s College Oxford from 20-23 September, 2017. ODC has a reputation as one of the leading international scientific conferences in the field of dysfluency.
Abstract submission deadline: 31 March 2017.
The conference brings together researchers and clinicians, providing a showcase and forum for discussion and collegial debate about the most current and innovative research and clinical practices. Throughout the history of ODC, the primary aim has been to bridge the gap between research and clinical practice.
The conference seeks to promote research that informs management, with interventions that are supported by sound theory and which inform future research.
In 2017, the goal is to encourage discussion and debate that will challenge and enhance our perspectives and understanding of research; the nature of stuttering and / or cluttering; and management across the ages.
