Stuttering and Dysfluency Links

If you think your child may be dysfluent (stuttering), the following resources may be helpful to you. Please remember many children go through a period of dysfluency when they are learning to speak including children with a diagnosis of apraxia. But stuttering or dysfluency can be a problem in addition to apraxia, so we encourage you to communicate with your speech language pathologist.

Stuttering
Stuttering is a disorder of speech fluency that interrupts the forward flow of speech. All individuals are disfluent at times, but what differentiates the person who stutters from someone with normal speech disfluencies is the kind and amount of the disfluencies.
