WHAT WE DO
Share what we know.
WE HELP BUILD SUPPORT GROUPS & NETWORKS
Our vision is to connect all support group leaders (SGLs) regardless of affiliation. We aim to share ideas, encouragement and best practices for stuttering support groups.
WSN is a place to learn how to create, build & enhance your own stuttering support group or network. We will help establish support group systems in countries where none exist.
