Since 1977, the National Stuttering Association (NSA) has partnered with speech-language pathologists (SLPs) to make the world brighter for people who stutter.

Stuttering is a complicated disorder and treating stuttering can be a challenging task. Many SLPs report they are not comfortable with their skills for helping children and adults who stutter. The NSA provides support groups, events, and education resources so SLPs can better help people cope with stuttering.

NSA Local Chapters

The NSA maintains a network of more than 200 local support groups for adults, families, kids, and teens. Stuttering support groups can help people who stutter build self-confidence, practice speaking in a safe environment, socialize with others, explore new ways to cope with stuttering, and, perhaps most importantly, assist others in achieving their goals.

Annual Conference

The Annual NSA Conference brings together hundreds of people who stutter. Each day is filled with laughter, friendship, support, information, excitement, encouragement, motivation, new ideas, and new perspectives. The NSA encourages SLPs to attend the conference for continuing education sessions and clinician-focused workshops. LEARN MORE

Research & Clinical Events

The Annual NSA Research Event immediately precedes the Annual Conference. The Symposium provides two fact-filled days of educational sessions with top researchers and clinicians from around the globe. You’ll learn about cutting-edge research, earn ASHA CEUs, and make connections with the SLP community.

Local Events

The NSA puts on various local events throughout the year, from Stuttering Fun Days and 1-Day Conferences to our Don’t Tell Me to ‘Slow Down’ 5Ks and film screenings, and so much more. These events bring together children and teens who stutter, their families, and speech-language pathologists for learning, support, and growth. FIND AN EVENT NEAR YOU.
