A stutter, stammer, or childhood-onset fluency disorder is a speech disorder that is characterized by the repetition of sounds, syllables, or words and usually begins between the ages of two and five. While about 80 percent of children who begin stuttering ultimately stop, those who carry their stutter into their school-age years are likely to continue stuttering for most of their lives. Thankfully, SpeechEasy offers a variety of anti stuttering devices that can help, but first, let’s talk about the signs that your child is in need of one.

Symptoms of stuttering in your child

It’s important to remember that every child’s development is different and stuttering is a genetically-influenced condition so understanding your family history can be key. These are some of the signs and symptoms that may point to your child’s need for an anti stuttering device.

  • Repeating sounds, syllables, or words
  • Talking slowly or with a lot of pauses
  • Being out of breath or nervous when talking
  • Increased stuttering when tired, excited, or stressed
  • stopped or blocked speech (the mouth is open, but nothing is said)
  • Being afraid to talk

These symptoms may be part of your child’s speech and language development, but if they last three to six months, it might be time to get your child’s stutter diagnosed. From there, we can get to work on finding the right anti stuttering device and payment plan for you and your child.
