Our Vision, Mission and Values

Our Values

ISA fosters a spirit of respect and understanding of stammering amongst all the people we meet and work with.

ISA places the needs of the person affected by stammering at the centre of our work and delivers support to the community connected by stammering in a caring and positive manner.

ISA is accountable to the community connected by stammering and conducts the business of the organisation in an effective, non-discriminatory, transparent and equitable manner.

ISA actively works with the community connected by stammering who are committed to furthering the understanding of stammering.

ISA believes in the empowerment of self-help groups at local level as a means of influencing the perceptions of Irish society towards stammering.

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.
