Welcome to the Philadelphia Chapter of the National Stuttering Association!
We are a self-help support group made up of people who stutter, who help each other help ourselves deal with the problems of stuttering. Together we seek to:
- Understand, accept, and control our stuttering to the best of our ability;
- Increase our self-confidence and self-esteem, regardless of fluency;
- Improve communication skills;
- Learn to make speech an easier and more enjoyable experience.
We invite you to come to one of our meetings. Everyone is welcome, including family members, speech-language professionals or students, and anyone with a personal or professional interest in stuttering and in those who stutter. Attendance is free. If you stutter, you are not alone!
