Resources For Speech-Language Pathologists

Welcome to the National Stuttering Association’s resources for Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs)! Our mission is to provide valuable resources and steadfast support to Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP) who play a crucial role in the lives of people who stutter (PWS).

Addressing stuttering can be a complex task, and SLPs can sometimes feel unsure about their abilities to assist both children and adults who stutter. That’s where the NSA can help! We offer support groups, events, and educational resources specifically designed to empower SLPs with the knowledge and tools they need to effectively work with individuals who stutter.
