NSA Tucson Chapter
The NSA Tucson Chapter was formed by David Carless in 1977 and is one of the first five NSA Chapters in the country. The local chapters meetings in Tucson allow people who stutter to just come and listen and/or participate in an informal, welcoming environment where “It is OK to stutter”. The members exchange information about stuttering and speech therapy and compare life and speaking experiences. Friends and family are welcome along with Speech/Language Pathologists and the University of Arizona student SLPs. The National Stuttering Association is a not-for-profit group. People who stutter are encouraged to sign up for the FREE membership in the NSA.
National Stuttering Association (NSA)
The National Stuttering Association (NSA) is the largest self-help organization in the United States for people who stutter. The NSA was created in 1977 to bring hope and empowerment to children and adults who stutter, their families, and professionals through support, education, advocacy, and research. The NSA serves as an advocate for the stuttering community and works to raise public awareness of this misunderstood disorder. The NSA operates on a network of over 125 local chapters, and hosts a large conference each year.
