Elementary School-Age Kids (NSAKids)
Just For Kids Who Stutter…
Sometimes being a kid who stutters can feel very lonely. The NSA is here to let you know you are not alone! There are approximately 3 million people who stutter living in the United States. Although you may not know very many people who stutter (maybe you’ve never met even one other person who stutters!), but they are out there; they have experienced many of the same feeling and challenges you are experiencing right now and they are ready to help!
