Welcome to the ________ Chapter of the National Stuttering Association. The National Stuttering Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing hope and empowerment to children and adults who stutter, their families, and professionals through support, education, advocacy, and research.

If you are a person who stutters, or have a special interest in stuttering, you are welcome here.

For the time we meet here, this room is a very special place.

It is a place where we are accepted and supported;

It is a place where we can relax and speak freely;

It is a place where we can stutter openly without fear and embarrassment;

It is a place where we can practice whatever speaking and communicating techniques with which we may feel comfortable.

Together, we will help each other and we will help ourselves to accept and cope with our stuttering, to build our self-confidence, and to improve our verbal communication skills to the best of our abilities.

We who stutter, and those who support and help us, are not alone. Together we are strong.
