Stuttering therapy?

Stuttering is seen as a dysfluency in speech and is usually characterised by a high frequency of stoppages or interruptions in the flow of speech.

Examples of stuttering:

  • Repetitions of words or parts of words: The The man is wwwalking
  • Prolongations of speech sounds: I am f…………our years old
  • Blocks, when the mouth is positioned to say a sound and very little sound comes out
  • Interjections or fillers: I would really um um like to um um have a puppy

It is normal for a pre-school child to have dysfluency at some stage of life. These will disappear after a few months. If the dysfluency persists after a few months, it is strongly advised to seek help from a Speech and Language Therapist.
