stuttering studdering

It is not uncommon for a 2-3 year old to stutter or stammer. Children at this age are learning to speak fast and furious. They are learning to use full sentences and sometimes the stutter can just help them to take a moment to think of what they want to say.

Stuttering occurs more frequently in boys than in girls.

Stuttering usually will last for several months.

In some cases stuttering can occur in very nervous children for longer periods of time or can recur during a particularly stressful event.

What Parents can do:

It is suggested that stuttering be ignored.

Perhaps slowing down your speech when talking to your child will help him to slow down.

Watch for the relationship between stuttering and events in your child's life.

Perhaps there is some way you can help alleviate your child's stress.

In children who stutter continuously and into the school years, it would be wise to seek professional help. Check with your child's pediatrician for referrals.
