Articles On Stuttering

The articles on stuttering on this website have one thing in common. They are chosen from many authors with the intention of offering you, the reader, a lucid understanding of what stuttering really is. Stuttering is more than an impediment of speech flow. Once children reach 6-7 years of age, nearly all of them begin developing cognitions (thoughts) and affect (feelings) about the stuttering. All adolescents to adults will have developed this. Some have called this the “ABC’s of Stuttering”: Affect, Behaviors, and Cognitions. Hence, effective treatment will require a clinician wearing the hats of speech expert and counselor. Contributing authors are cited as appropriate. Enjoy the learnings and visit this site again for new postings.
