                                             Fluency (Stuttering)

Stuttering is a speech disorder which affects the flow of speech.  For most children, it begins during childhood and can last throughout life. Stuttering is characterized by disruptions in the production of speech sounds, commonly called "dysfluencies." Most people produce brief dysfluencies from time to time that do not affect overall communication.  However, they can affect communication when a person produces too many of them. Many children go through a normal period of dysfluency as they are acquiring language and this stage is considered a part of normal development from the age of 2-4 years.  

Signs/Symptoms of Stuttering

Stuttered speech is characterized of repetitions of words or parts of words ~ "ba-ba-ba baby" and/or  prolongations of speech sounds ~ "sssssnake" Some people exhibit blocking ~ where speech is completely interrupted ~ and may exhibit secondary characteristics such as eye blinking, foot stomping, head jerking, etc. 

If you are concerned about your own or your child's fluency please contact our office to schedule an appointment.  For additional resources on stuttering, please visit the following websites.
