Stuttering is complex, interesting, misunderstood, and newsworthy, which is why we see reports on the subject all the time. Television, newspapers, magazines, internet sites, and others report on stuttering, but the views and attitudes expressed about stuttering are not always accurate in reflecting the views of the National Stuttering Association.

Reporters are often looking for an interesting angle or an “amazing breakthrough possible cure” for stuttering, so they often focus on specific findings. Nonetheless, we appreciate and welcome the publicity since it brings stuttering to the forefront and increases stuttering awareness. We’ve highlighted here a few recent news stories about stuttering and the NSA.
