Stuttering, sometimes referred to as stammering or diffluent speech, can be very humiliating for a child. This speech disorder is different than normal repetition of words, which children often do when learning how to talk. Normal developmental stuttering often begins between 18 months and 5 years old. Your child might begin to repeat words or phrases, have trouble pronunciation of words, leave out words or sounds, or speak some words that are hard to recognize.
Children with true stuttering have some normal developmental speech problems, but are then pressured to speak better. The child then becomes aware of his speech and struggles to speak better, which actually makes the speech worse.
