National Stuttering Association:
Welcome to the WMU-Kalamazoo Chapter of the National Stuttering Association (NSA)!
The WMU-Kalamazoo NSA chapter is a support group that welcomes all people who stutter or have a special interest in stuttering. We get together once a month to socialize, and discuss stuttering-related topics in an open and supportive environment.
Please explore the website to stay informed on upcoming events, or find out what we’ve been doing at past meetings.
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us.
Thank you for visiting and we hope to see you at one of our upcoming meetings or events!
Why should you come to meetings?
“I get to meet others who stutter.”
“It helps me realize that I am not alone in my stuttering.”
“I can share personal experiences with others who stutter.”
“It is an environment where I can feel comfortable stuttering.”
“I don’t have to ‘explain’ what stuttering is to everyone here.”
“I can be free to hear and discuss different points of view about stuttering.”
