People who stutter know what they want to say, but find it difficult to express it. For instance, they may repeat or prolong a word, syllable, or phrase, or stop speaking and make no sound for certain syllables. Stuttering is also known as stammering or childhood-onset fluency disorder.

Young children may stutter when their speech and language abilities aren’t developed enough to keep up with what they want to say, which is a common occurrence among young children as a normal part of learning to speak. Most children outgrow this developmental stuttering.

Stuttering can affect one’s self-esteem and social interactions if it is a chronic condition that lasts into adulthood, though this is not always the case.

Consult your physician or a speech-language pathologist, or look for a program designed to treat adult stuttering, if you’re an adult who stutters and it affects your self-esteem, career, or relationships, or causes you stress or anxiety.

After a thorough evaluation by a speech-language pathologist, a decision about the best treatment approach can be made for children and adults who stutter, and may include therapies like speech therapy, psychological counseling, or using electronic devices to improve speech patterns.

The underlying causes of persistent stuttering are still being investigated by researchers, but it’s possible that a number of variables are at play.

Abnormalities in speech motor control.Timing, sensory, and motor coordination issues may be related to abnormalities in speech motor control, according to some evidence.

Genetics.It appears that inherited (genetic) abnormalities in the language centers of the brain can cause stuttering, which is a condition that tends to run in families.

Medical conditions.A stroke, head injury, or another type of brain damage can occasionally cause stuttering.

Mental health problems.Stuttering can occasionally, inexplicably, result from emotional trauma.

SymptomsThe following are examples of stammering symptoms:

A word, sentence, or phrase that is difficult to begin

Extending a word or a word’s sounds

Repeating a word, syllable, or sound

A word that has been broken or has a brief pause for a particular syllable.

If there will be trouble moving on to the next word, add extra words like “um.”

Excessive tightness, tension, or facial or upper body movement when uttering a word

· Anxiety about talking

Insufficient communication skills

Stuttering may be accompanied by one or more of the following:

· Rapid eye blinks

Lip and jaw trembling

· Facial tics

· Head jerks

· Clenching fists

For those who stutter, situations like speaking in front of a group or talking on the phone can be particularly challenging. Stuttering may be exacerbated by emotions such as excitement, fatigue, or stress, as well as by feelings of self-consciousness, hurriedness, or pressure.

The majority of stutterers, however, can speak normally when they sing or speak aloud to another person or to themselves.

Stuttering is more likely to occur when there are certain risk factors present.

Having relatives who stutter.There is a familial tendency for stuttering.

Delayed childhood development.A child’s likelihood of stuttering may increase if they have other speech issues or developmental delays.

Being male.Stuttering is much more common in men than it is in women.

Stress.Existing stuttering can get worse under pressure from family stress, strict parents, or other factors.

Complications– Stuttering can lead to:

· Low self-esteem

· Problems communicating with others

Avoiding situations where speaking is necessary or not speaking

Loss of participation in society, academic success, and employment

· Being bullied or teased

Having social anxiety disorder or experiencing anxiety in social situations
