National Stuttering Association
The world's largest gathering of people who stutter.
The National Stuttering Association Annual Conference is a gathering of adults, children, families, and friends who share stuttering as a common bond.
During our four days together, we’ll be educated, motivated, and challenged. We’ll be moved as we listen to stories from people who stutter and as we share our own stories, perhaps for the first time.
Most importantly, we’ll realize how amazing it is to belong to a very special community of caring souls who understand exactly how stuttering impacts one’s life.
What To Expect
A powerful life-changing experience where the majority of people you meet and talk with a stutter.
It’s a difficult decision to attend for the first time, but we can ease your fears.
