Child speech development: stuttering

Add your advice here…
Message length 300 characters recommended

Between the ages of 2-5, it's not unusual for kids to stutter, repeat certain words, syllables or phrases, prolonging or stopping them, or making no sounds at all for certain words or syllables. Children often outgrow it by age 5 and in some cases, it stays longer. Even though there's no cure for stuttering, there are treatment options.

If you notice your child doing this, speak with their pediatrician who may recommend a speech-language therapist.

Try to enunciate your words, speak slowly, and remember that their brain is probably working faster than their mouth.
