Great list of local support groups! There are also support groups for people who stutter (PWS) where they can meet other PWS. As a PWS I find that emotional support is just as important as therapy for our stuttering (if not more important). To meet other PWS who can relate to what we go through with our stuttering helps us accept our stuttering more than anything else. The National Stuttering Association (NSA - www.westutter.org ), which is the largest self-help non-profit organization for people who stutter in the country, offers several programs which provides the opportunity for people who stutter to meet and interact with other people who stutter at local chapter meetings, workshops and annual conferences in which over 600 people who stutter (including kids and teens) attend each year! This year they are celebrating 33 years! Conferences in recent years have included such keynote speakers as Vice President Joe Biden, Arthur Blank (Owner, Atlanta Falcons), Adrian Peterson (Chicago Bears), Annie Glenn, John Melendez and John Stossel. They all shared truly amazing stories.

Is that a typo for "Support Grumps?" If so, I can name a few.

I don't, but I just asked my husband who is an avid Star Trek fan and he remembers them well. I didn't watch a lot of Star Trek until "The Next Generation."
