Involvement with the National Stuttering Association (NSA), which was formerly known as National Stuttering Project (NSP). Served as the facilitator/director of the Los Angeles Chapter of the National Stuttering Association for 14 years. The chapter met once a month in Pasadena, California.
Served on the Board of Directors of the National Stuttering Association (NSA) from 1994 to 1997. During that time period helped facilitate "The Year of the Child Who Stutters". NSA had received a grant from the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) to put on the workshops for children who stutter and their parents across the USA. Charged with the running of the workshops held in Los Angeles, California. Also, I am an adviser to the NSA board on professional matters.
In 1993, at the Washington D. C.'s National Stuttering Association Convention, pioneered an all day workshop for "Youth Who Stutter and Their Families". This was instrumental in producing this as a regular workshop in subsequent conventions. This workshop would become a third or more of the attendance at the annual conventions. The convention workshop became 3 days of events for the youth who stutter, and their families. Since the conception of a "youth day" workshop, the National Stuttering Association hosts such events throughout the calendar year.
Helped formulate and supervises the Stuttering Clinic at the California State University at Northridge, California ( CSUN ).
