  • The National Stuttering Association is a United States support group organization for people who stutter. Its headquarters are in New York City. The NSA was founded by Bob Goldman and Michael Sugarman as the National Stuttering Project in California in 1977. Currently the NSA functions through a network of more than 100 local adult, teen, and children's chapters nationwide. The NSA sponsors regional workshops, youth and family events, education seminars for speech-language pathologists, and an Annual Conference, which hosts an average of 900 attendees. The NSA also publishes educational resources, such as pamphlets and booklets about stuttering, as well as a newsletter: Letting Go . The NSA also sponsors a biweekly Google+ Hangout for teens who stutter. In November 2002, in the year of the NSA's 25th anniversary, the Association received the Distinguished Service Award from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. The NSA played a key role in establishing the National Stuttering Awareness Week in 1988.
