National Stuttering Awareness Week 2021
May 9 - May 15
This annual event is a time for all of us to raise stuttering awareness in our own communities, and on a national scale, with a goal of educating the public and reaching those who stutter who still feel alone and isolated.
The National Stuttering Association was instrumental in getting NSAW established by an act of Congress in 1988 when two long-time NSA members, Paul Castellano and Barbara Hubbard Koval, organized the drive to win Congressional recognition for people who stutter. In 1988 President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation establishing the second week in May 1988 as National Stuttering Awareness Week, which we continue to observe today.
