If You Stutter…You have FRIENDS!

FRIENDS is the only national organization dedicated solely to empowering young people who stutter and their families

Our mission is to provide support and education to children and teens who stutter, their families and clinicians.

Our annual conventions and regional one day conferences provide the opportunities for life changing experiences that can change long lasting feelings about stuttering and offer new hope for a life with stuttering.
