Stuttering / Stammering

Stuttering happens when the flow of speech is disrupted by sounds that are repeated or prolonged. Most children outgrow stuttering, but some need specialized help from a speech therapist. Children who stutter are as intelligent as other children, but the stuttering itself may cause them to become more anxious or shy in social situations.

Join this online support group for stuttering to learn more from therapists and other parents and find out how you can help your child.
