Allison O’Brien is a person who stutters. She became a founding member and board director of the NLSA to make a difference. Her goals are to increase awareness, education, and respect for people who stutter. To reduce bullying by children, adults, and employers. To make therapy more accessible and to make society more accepting. Not only for her child but for all children. For the next generation of people who stutter and for every child who is different.
