A stutter is not a “weakness” or “a defect.” Nor is it something people need to “get rid of.”
There shouldn’t be shame in having a stutter. It’s how we talk.

Learn the facts about stuttering to erase the myths.

Together, we can change the conversation about stuttering.

Our greatest appreciation goes to STAMMA for leading this initiative and to our friends at the Canadian Stuttering Association, the Australian Speak Easy Association, and the Irish Stammering Association for giving this message a global reach.

 National Stuttering Association

The National Stuttering Association (NSA) provides support, friendship, and information to the stuttering community, instilling the sense of self-worth so often missing in the lives of those who battle this condition.

The NSA is the largest non-profit organization in the world dedicated to bringing hope and empowerment to children and adults who stutter, their families, and professionals, through support, education, advocacy, and research. Our vision is to build on our position as the preeminent organization for supporting people who stutter.

Who We Help

Local Chapters

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. Our motto: If You Stutter, You’re Not Alone, is what our local support groups are all about!

The teenage years can be an exciting and challenging stage of life – new schools, new freedoms, and new challenges, including those with your speech. Rest assured, you are not alone!


The NSA is the preeminent organization for supporting people who stutter through support, education, advocacy, and research.


The NSA is here to serve as a source of support, education, information for both you and your child through the myriad of challenges that you will encounter.

Pathologists (SLP)

Stuttering is a complicated disorder, and treating it can be a challenge. At the NSA, we believe that SLPs can help people to successfully cope with stuttering.


As the largest stuttering support organization in North America, we are advancing both knowledge and understanding of stuttering


Our Resources

Although there is no simple cure for stuttering at this time, people who stutter can learn to speak more easily, feel better about themselves and their speech.



NSA@Home is our version of the amazing Annual Conference we’ve come to love, in a new online format.

In July 2020 we hosted four days of incredible interactive programs for adults, teens, ‘tweens/kids, parents, and speech professionals, all available online now for you to view at your convenience.
