The Comfort Inn & Suites Goodearth Perth, Freecall: 1800 098 863 is where the convention is taking place and a bed in a 4 bed apartment starts at $57 per person per night.

Directly across the road is the Quality Hotel Ambassador Perth Freecall: 1800 998 011 and it has double rooms or twin rooms at $150 ($75 per person).

When booking a room online, enter promo code SPEAKEASY to get the discount. I enclose accommodation options in a downloadable document with clickable links.

If each state can try and get 3 or 4 people who wish to share an apartment that would work best. If you need help with sharing a room then contact us at

Hello Everyone,

Our next South Australian support meeting on Monday 5th June at 7.00pm promises to be a special one. Psychology Honors student Martha Depasquale and ABC journalist Isabel Dayman have contacted me wanting to hear from people who stutter about their feelings, thoughts and experiences.

This is a wonderful opportunity to share your story with Martha and Isabel and possibly contribute to improved welfare for people who stutter. Come along and have your say in a supportive environment.

We will also have a presentation on Stuttering and Bilingualism.

Experience, Learn, Grow!

Hoping to see you all at Wakefield Hotel. Meet in dining area towards rear.
