STUTTERING

Our Speech Therapists Come to You!

“Stuttering is a speech disorder that involves involuntary hesitations / blocking, sound, syllable and word repetitions and sound prolongations resulting in disrupted and dysfluent speech. Secondary stuttering features may include eye blinking and involuntary movements of the facial muscles, head or other body parts.”

Stuttering and Dysfluency

Stuttering is rarely considered a psychological problem; however stressful social situations and anxiety can make the symptoms worse. Stuttering tends to persist more into adulthood in boys than girls. There is a 4 to 1 incidence of stuttering in males compared to females.

The following risk factors may indicate a need for early intervention by a Speech-Language Pathologist: family history of stuttering, sound repetitions or very long sounds within words, physical tension /blocks or hesitancy in starting phrases or sentences, eye blinking and involuntary movements of the body while speaking.
