A stutter or stammer is not uncommon and is absolutely treatable. However, there are different classifications your stutter might fall under. Identifying what classification your stutter falls under could help determine the best course of action for treatment and which SpeechEasy stuttering device is right for you.

Developmental Stuttering

This type of stuttering occurs in young children who are still learning speech and language skills and is the most common form of stuttering. While some scientists and clinicians believe this type of stutter occurs due to a gap between the child’s language skills and their verbal demands, most believe that this kind of stutter stems from a complex interaction between multiple factors. Typically, children grow out of this form of stuttering, but if it persists, your child’s communicative skills could benefit from a stuttering device provided by SpeechEasy.

Neurogenic Stuttering

Caused by a brain injury, stroke, or head trauma, a neurogenic stutter is what occurs when the brain has difficulty coordinating the different parts of the brain that control speech functions. This miscommunication is what causes the stutter and while this form of stutter can appear in people of all ages, it is most common amongst geriatric age groups.

Psychogenic Stuttering

This form can’t be explained by a physical cause but is instead the result of emotional trauma or stress. Psychogenic stuttering can be difficult to diagnose as there isn’t a specific age range for onset, but an early diagnosis can help you decide which SpeechEasy treatment plan and stuttering device are right for you.
