Help Your Child Speak More Clearly and Build Confidence

Stuttering may occur for toddlers from 18 months to 5 years of age. While it is associated with certain literacy development processes, excessive stuttering is a cause for concern.

Speech therapy can help with reducing tendencies for stuttering. Supporting them along the way will help them improve their fluency and speak with more confidence.

How Can My Child Stop Stuttering?

Stuttering is characterized by stuck letters and speech sounds, repeating syllables and long mid-sentence pauses. It is a struggle for children to express themselves while stuttering, but there are some ways to help them. A child may outgrow stuttering if they are supported by:


letting them take their time when speaking/responding to a question


slowing down conversations with them to give time to process information


providing them full attention and showing that you’re focused and listening


encouraging them to speak and build confidence

Most children outgrow stuttering by the age of 5, but if your child’s stuttering is persistent, it’s best to seek help as early as possible. You can start today by getting in touch with our speech-language pathologists.
