The National Stuttering Association (NSA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to people affected by stuttering. Established in 1977, it provides education, support, and empowerment tools to children and adults who stutter. In addition the organization serves their families and the speech-language pathologists who work with affected individuals. Consisting of 46 chapters and 5,000 members, the NSA also serves as an advocate and raises the consciousness of the general public about stuttering. Educational materials produced by the organization include a monthly newsletter entitled "Letting Go," audio-visual aids, and informational brochures such as "A Guide for Parents of Children Who Stutter" in English and Spanish. A networking support system, including local support groups, seeks to provide emotional support and information. The NSA also operates a toll-free national support hotline.
