To take care of interests of those who stutter against authorities, schools and employers.
To increase knowledge of those who stutter and others about stuttering, the problems involved for those who stutter and stuttering treatments.
Organise/spread knowledge about stuttering among every one that might be interested, e.g. in kindergartens and primary schools, on Lion’s and Rotary meetings. Our organisation can be contacted for further information.
Stimulate parents to have stuttering evaluated by a speech therapist before it becomes a problem.
Stimulate relationships among those who stutter, especially children.
Urge those who stutter to speak. Make stuttering more visible and less prone to shyness.
