About the British Stammering Association
The British Stammering Association (BSA), established in 1978, is a national registered charity. It is the only UK-wide charity which helps both adults and children who stammer.
The BSA provides information, help and support to all whose lives are affected by stammering. More about the BSA...
The BSA is committed to developing and implementing major projects to address the varying needs of all those affected by the stammering. It is currently working to:
help spread knowledge of existing good practice in therapy for pre-school children (Every Child's Chance of Fluency...)
address neglected issues concerning education and pupils who stammer (more...)
General information on stammering
Guidelines on speaking with someone who stammers.
We can put you in touch with people who stammer and others who are happy to be interviewed. We can usually find someone locally where that is required. Please contact the Media contacts above.
People who stammer can make excellent interviewees. Communication skills are more important than fluency, and of course different people have different degrees of fluency.
