The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) Stammering Support Network, in association with STAMMA (The British Stammering Association) aims to provide a place for those professionals involved in acoustics across the UK who stammer to come together in a mutually supportive environment. We invite fellow acousticians who also stammer to discuss concerns they may have about carrying out their role, where speech may be an important aspect. Through sharing our experiences and insights we hope to provide support to acousticians in all levels of their career where there may be some challenges around speaking fluently.

The group is also open to those involved in acoustics who wish to seek advice in respect of stammering for an employee, colleague, or even friend or family member. All those who stammer are different and it may be that the best thing we can do for an individual is to sign post to the most useful information on the STAMMA website.

STAMMA, the British Stammering Association, is dedicated to creating a world where people who stammer are able to fulfil their potential and enjoy respect and consideration.
