    About Stuttering

    The ability to produce speech that is smooth, forward moving and effortless is taken for granted by most individuals – except those who stutter.

    • Stuttering is a speech disorder characterized by a lack of fluency
    • A person who stutters repeats words and parts of words, prolongs sounds, has difficulty producing sounds and generally speaks in fragmented phrases
    • Due to the frustration and embarrassment caused by this problem, stuttering is usually accompanied by anxiety about speaking
    • The person who stutters often acquires secondary behaviours, such as eye-blinking, head jerks or facial grimaces, in an attempt to speak
    • Stuttering can impact self-confidence and self-esteem and can seriously limit educational, social and career options.

    Stuttering is a chronic condition that usually begins between the ages of 3 and 6 and often persists through adulthood.

    Stuttering affects approximately one out of every 100 persons
