ABOUT US

Welcome to Stutter UAE

We embrace stuttering with open hearts and warm smiles. Based in Abu Dhabi and launched in 2013, we are the first networking platform for people who stutter in the UAE. We aim to provide a safe and supportive environment for people who stutter to meet and connect while utilizing resources and information to help in everyday activities despite stuttering.

We believe that everyone has a valuable contribution, regardless of their speech fluency. Whether you're looking to connect with others, seeking support, or wanting to learn more about stuttering, we invite you to join one of our events. We hope to create a warm and supportive community where you can be yourself and find the support you need.
