Stuttering Directory

Stuttering is a speech disorder in which a person repeats words or parts of certain words when trying to talk. Stuttering may affect anyone at any age, but it is most common in kids ages 2 to 5. A child who stutters can have a hard time communicating with others and may become frustrated. While stuttering, a child may also blink rapidly or have trembling lips. Stuttering may be mild or severe. Certain speaking or singing activities may make the stutter worse or better.
