Stuttering, fluency disorders information sessions set at Biltmore Park

Western Carolina University’s Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is offering free information sessions for anyone interested in stuttering and fluency disorders Monday, Oct. 22, and Wednesday, Oct. 24, at the university’s Biltmore Park instructional site in Asheville.

Chagit Clark

Both sessions begin at 5 p.m. in Room 344 and will be led by Chagit Clark, an Asheville-based speech-language pathologist and WCU assistant professor of communication sciences and disorders. Sessions will provide information on how to be a more effective communicator and manage challenging speaking situations. Light refreshments will be served.

WCU offers regular clinics at the Biltmore Park instructional site for children and adults who stutter on Wednesdays and Fridays, by appointment. The clinic accepts most insurance for payment and can work with families if they are uninsured or underinsured.

With limited space available for the free information sessions, pre-registration is recommended. For more information or to sign up, contact Clark at cedery@wcu.edu or call 828-227-3376 or 828-490-1143, or clinic director Tracie Rice at 828-227-3378.
