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.

“Everything changed for me when I went to my first NSA Conference at the age of twelve. I felt as if I had slipped into another world, a world that was finally made for me… I found people who understood everything that I dealt with when it came to my stutter.”
