ELSA promotes the exchange of information in several ways:
- A newsletter ('Voice of ELSA') is published twice a year, providing news and background articles about recent developments in European countries. Additionally, the ELSA newsletter provides a platform for personal exchange, eg. by publishing letters or requests for pen friendships.
- The associations' attitudes towards self-help and their general policies have been collected and compiled in two comprehensive surveys detailed descriptions of their work Methods and Concepts of Stuttering Self-Help, 1993; & Stuttering and Employment, 1994 (see Publications section for details.)
- A library collection of material produced and published by the member associations (newsletters, brochures, books, videos etc.) is kept at the ELSA office in Köln serving as a basis for a planned database on stuttering and self-help.
