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!
