British Stammering Association

Organisation name
British Stammering Association
The British Stammering Association (BSA) is a national registered charity. People who stammer, their parents, relatives and friends, speech and language therapists and other professionals as well as interested individuals from all over the UK are welcome as members. BSA receives over 3,000 enquiries per year from people who stammer, parents, therapists, teachers and others. They are all dealt with by trained volunteers and staff in the BSA office. All activities are geared towards preventing stammering in young children, promoting wider understanding and helping people to help themselves.

Help is given in the following ways:

Free information packs are available for adults, teenagers and children who stammer; parents, therapists and teachers.
The BSA Regional Directories of Speech Therapy Provision in the UK list specialist therapists and self-help groups.
An extensive mail order service of books, audio and video tapes provides detailed information, especially helpful when no local specialist therapy is available.
The benefits of BSA membership (quarterly magazine; lending library; telephone and social activities) are promoted.
