Stuttering (Blog #2)

Stuttering is a speech disorder in which sounds, syllabus and words are repeated. There are involuntary pauses and blocks within the speech. Stuttering is categorized as a developmental disorder as well. It begins in early childhood and sometimes continues into adulthood, stuttering causes social and communication issues.

Ex. W-W-W-What are you doing?

As of right now doctors do not know what causes this. For treatment there are behavioral programs readily available to improve oral communication and stuttering therapy.
