National Stuttering Association Support Group

For many people who stutter, National Stuttering Association (NSA) chapter meetings are the first time they have ever talked about stuttering with other people who stutter. Local support groups are a proven way to build self-confidence, practice speaking in a safe environment, and explore new ways to cope with stuttering. Chapter meetings are open to adults who stutter, parents, significant others, friends of stutterers, speech-language pathologists (SLPs), and anyone that wants to learn more about stuttering.
