We are a charitable organisation providing information and support to people who stammer in Ireland. Stuttering, as it is also known, affects people of all ages and from all backgrounds. Parents, partners, friends and family can also be affected by stammering. Please take some time to explore our site. Feel free to contact us if you would like further information on our activities or just for a chat.
Veronica Lynch has stammered for as long as she has been talking and from an early age she learned to use many tricks and avoidances so people wouldn’t find out she stammered. It was only when her youngest daughter also began stammering that Veronica decided to deal with her own stutter. Now, 6 years after attending her first speech therapy on the Dublin Adult Stammering intensive course she is an active member and chairperson of the Irish Stammering Association promoting awareness and support for people who stammer.
Veronica regularly attends the Dublin Support Group meetings and has been on the committee of the ISA since November 2008; she currently holds the position of Honorary Treasurer.
Through her daughter Bevin, she has a special interest in support for children who stammer and was instrumental, along with Jonathon Linklater and Cathal Quinn, in setting up the ISA children’s drama project, ISAYiT! She is also involved in establishing a support network for parents of children who stammer.
