Living with stuttering can be difficult, but it doesn’t need to be so. The slogan of the National Stuttering Association is you are not alone. You are not alone when you feel stuck when speaking, feel unable to say what they want to say the way they want to say it, or feel like stuttering limits you as you life your life.

Stuttering is more than a speech behavior. It’s a condition that can negatively (and often severely) impact the life of a person. Stuttering can dictate what a person does or does not do, what jobs think they think they can do, what classes they take, whether they speak to someone on the sidewalk, whether they think they can be happy or have success.
