"The NSA to me is an organization that helps people feel better and a part of society. People who stutter may feel that they have a disability, but the NSA helps them see that it's not a disability. It shows them that they can still do whatever they dream."
Austin, TX - Parent of teenager who stutters
"While I have wonderful support from friends and family, the NSA gives me an opportunity to share my experiences with people who truly understand. There's no other place in the world where I can speak without the concern of a negative reaction. I can walk into an NSA meeting and introduce myself knowing with 100% certainty that everyone in the room understands."

The National Stuttering Association brings hope and empowerment to children, teens and adults who stutter and serves as an advocate for the stuttering community. The Austin Chapter is made up of adult and youth chapters which provide safe and supportive environments for people who stutter to speak freely, practice techniques, share experiences and meet others who intimately understand the challenges of stuttering.
