For People Who Stutter

Stuttering is the sense of loss of control while speaking, which means that people who stutter know exactly what they want to say, but fell stuck when they try to speak (Tichenor & Yaruss, 2019). The way that society respond to this condition can generate consequences, such as social exclusion, negative self-perception, bullying, and so on. However, there are many excellent organizations available to help people who stutter. Here is just a brief list of organizations dedicated to stuttering.

Friends: The National Association of Young People Who Stutter, was founded in 1997. It provides support, education and empowerment to children and teens who stutter, their families and clinicians. Also, they organize virtual Kid, Teens, Young Adults, and Parents groups monthly.

The National Stuttering Association (NSA) is an organization dedicated to bringing hope and empowerment to children and adults who stutter, their families, and professionals, through support, education, advocacy, and research. They organize conferences, Zoom events for people who stutter and their families, share information in a Youtube Channel, and so on.

The Stuttering Foundation is an organization established by Malcolm Fraser in 1947 in Memphis, Tennessee. It provides free online resources, services and support to those who stutter and their families, as well as support for research into the causes of stuttering. They also have a podcast in Spotify, with interviews to experts in the field.
SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young is a national nonprofit organization that provides support, advocacy, and life-changing programs for young people who stutter, ages 3 - 18. They organize events, including an in-person summer camp with activities that help kids and teens who stutter develop confidence and independence, improve communication skills, and form important lifelong friendships.
