Today I went to my first NSA meeting. The National Stuttering Association has local chapters that provide support and a safe environment for people who stutter. As a future speech-language pathologist, I’m very interested in stuttering. I recently took a fluency class (you can see me talk a little about it here), and I wanted to hear more from people who stutter and show my own support. I learned that going to these support groups at the local level and going to conferences at the national level have been a huge help to some individuals through the connections they make. A theme of “I’m not alone” continued throughout the meeting. Although only a few people attended, I really enjoyed my experience.
Any people who stutter, SLPs, or other individuals impacted by stuttering have experience with support groups or the National Stuttering Association?
