Connect with BSA on Facebook and Twitter, including our closed Facebook group.
Do join our closed BSA Facebook group. This is a space where people can talk openly about stammering. It also lets you keep up-to-date with BSA and with stammering events and news through your Facebook news feed.
We began the closed group in late 2013, in response to requests from BSA members for a place to talk about stammering in a safe environment. Since it is 'closed', your posts there aren't seen by your Facebook friends. The group took off straight away, with many posting to introduce themselves, tell other members what helps them the most with their stammers, and starting their own discussions. You can find the rules of the closed group here. Some comments from members:
"It's so nice to finally speak, as I wouldn't do so in the open page"
"I've finally found a private group where I can talk about my stammer."
The closed group includes not just people who stammer but also parents of children who stammer, therapists etc.
Also, for more stammering news, you can 'like' our public BSA Facebook page.
You can find more Facebook groups and other online groups, for example for young adults and for women who stammer at Online groups.
We post links and news on Twitter - follow us there. Our account is '@stammer', and you are very welcome to tweet us.
We put together this video on our social media impact, for our National Conference 2014:
