Does your child repeat words and phrases over and over? This doesn t necessarilymean he has a stutter.

Toddler Development Stuttering
Does your child repeat words and phrases over and over? This doesn't necessarily mean he has a stutter.
Sometimes their muscles aren't coordinated to say words as quickly as their mind is thinking them, and when this happens it's called normal non-fluency, which means, for example that "they may trip up on little words in their sentences, or they just get words stuck on the tip of their tongue and they aren't able to get them out as quickly as they'd like."
Although children outgrow normal non-fluency, Donna says parents still need to be patient when it happens. "When you hear normal non-fluency in a child, it's important to maintain eye contact so that you can tell your child with your body language that you're still interested in what he's saying and that you'll wait as long as it takes for him to express his ideas to you. With that you are giving him is the gift of all of your attention so that he knows you value his ideas that they have to share with you."
As for stuttering, it may be suspected "when we see the child beginning to struggle with speech, break his words up, fragment his speech", says Dr. Bob Kroll, a language fluency expert. Kroll says there's a distinct difference between the child going through a phase of normal non-fluency and the child who stutters. "Instead of hearing the repetitive "mommy, mommy, mommy" we might hear things like "m-m-mommy, m-m-mommy, c-c-can I have some juice". That would indicate much more of a struggle and tension with the speech process."

Home Introduction Articles Links ... Forum
By William D. Parry, Esq. Founder, Philadelphia Area Chapter of the National Stuttering Association Why is stuttering usually worst when the words are most important? This article shows how a natural bodily function - the Valsalva mechanism - may turn our efforts to speak into the very blocks we are trying so hard to avoid. It explains how a combination of physical and psychological factors may trap us in a "Valsalva-Stuttering Cycle" - a vicious circle that may trigger and perpetuate stuttering, as well as sabotaging our efforts at fluency maintenance. (For further information, see Understanding and Controlling Stuttering: A Comprehensive New Approach Based on the Valsalva Hypothesis.
I. Introduction
It is a great honor to be invited to speak at this World Congress in Sweden. As you know, I come from the United States, where I lead the Philadelphia Area Chapter of the National Stuttering Project. By profession, I am a lawyer. But the great obsession of my life has been the mystery of stuttering - a condition with which I have struggled since I was four years old. Over the years, I submitted to a wide range of therapies, without lasting success. Finally, about fifteen years ago, I gave up on therapy altogether and began doing my own research into the problem.

Stuttering (sometimes called "stammering") is a specific kind of disfluency, in which the flow of speech tends to be involuntarily disrupted by forceful closures of the mouth or larynx, by repetitions or prolongations of sounds and syllables, or by hesitations or delays in making voiced sounds. Stuttering generally involves an excessive amount of effort, force, and struggle in the attempt to speak. It also may be accompanied by a variety of behaviors intended to avoid, postpone, or hide the blocks.
Stuttering, while not the worst of handicaps, certainly can be one of the most frustrating. Unlike other disabilities, stuttering has the mystifying and maddening habit of coming and going. Even if you stutter badly, chances are that you will be perfectly fluent when singing, talking in unison with other people, and in certain speaking situations. You may do a great job acting out a role on stage, but not be able to say your name when asked. You may begin telling a joke with perfect fluency, but not be able to deliver the punch line. You may have long stretches of fluency when it really doesn't matter. Then, just when the words are most important, stuttering jumps out of the closet and pins your speech to the ground.
This website is devoted to exploring the puzzle of stuttering, the factors that may cause or perpetuate it, and what we might do to control or alleviate it through therapy or self help. We are also interested in encouraging self-esteem and acceptance for persons who stutter, fighting discrimination, and educating the public about this often misunderstood condition.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Stuttering (commonly known as stammering in the UK and scientifically known as dysphemia ) is a speech disorder in which the normal flow of speech is frequently disrupted by repetitions (sounds, syllables, words or phrases), pauses and prolongations that differ both in frequency and severity from those of normally fluent individuals. The term stuttering is most commonly associated with involuntary sound repetition, but it also encompasses the abnormal hesitation or pausing before speech, referred to by stutterers as blocks , and the prolongation of certain sounds, usually vowels . Much of what constitutes "stuttering" cannot be observed by the listener; this includes such things as sound and word fears, situational fears, anxiety, tension, shame, and a feeling of "loss of control" during speech. The emotional state of the individual who stutters in response to the stuttering often constitutes the most difficult aspect of the disorder. About 1% of adults and 5% of children in the world are afflicted with some form of the disorder , with slightly higher percentages of affected African (8-9%) and West Indies (3-4%) adults . Men account for approximately 80% of all stutterers, while women are much more likely to either outgrow or recover from the disorder

The University of Illinois Stuttering Research Project
Principal Investigator: Dr. Ehud Yairi The National Institutes of Health has funded the Stuttering Research Project at the University of Illinois for more than 10 years. The general objective of this project is to study the onset and subsequent development of stuttering in children under age six. We know that with time some children develop chronic, more severe symptoms, while others improve and show spontaneous recovery. Our objectives are to:
  • Determine variations in onset and their possible effect on the future course of the problem Obtain accurate data on the magnitude and timing of spontaneous recovery Identify factors that can influence the recovery and those that lead to chronic stuttering Identify means that can be used to make early prediction of the likelihood of chronic vs. transient stuttering Describe and quantify symptom changes over time and isolate subtypes of stuttering Identify the possible genetic basis of stuttering- Click here to obtain more information about participating in a new study about stuttering in families
The general study involves a wide range of testing of young children as close as possible to the onset of stuttering. This includes tests of speech, language, hearing, motor skills, intellectual functioning, and emotional reactions, as well as audio and video recordings, thorough case histories, and familial pedigrees. After initial testing we proceed with follow-ups every six months for a period of several years. Through this close monitoring, we hope to document what happens to children who begin stuttering and generate criteria for subtyping and risks.

Genetics of Stuttering Project
During the 10 years since we began out NIH-funded longitudinal study of stuttering, an important focus of the investigation has been the genetic basis of stuttering. In the past, much of our research related to this aspect has focused on the familial distribution of stuttering. This research has yielded a number of important findings that have provided strong support for the assertion that genetics plays an important role in the disorder. Our findings have justified taking further steps into this endeavor. During the past several years, we have teamed up with a group of investigators including Drs. Nancy Cox and Edwin Cook, from the University of Chicago School of Medicine, to pursue the genetics of stuttering more directly through biological studies. Specifically, we are currently pursuing the ambitious goal of identifying the gene(s) for stuttering. In our opinion, this is among the most important research undertakings in stuttering. Although encouraging progress has been made, there is a great need for more information. The first stage toward achieving this objective is known as "linkage analysis". It is aimed at finding the general location of the gene(s). Once we have this information, it will be possible to pursue identification for the specific gene or genes. To conduct the study we need to obtain small amounts of blood from certain members of selected families. We are looking for

Understanding Stuttering
By Nathan Lavid, M.D.
Insight into an ailment that impairs more than sixty million in the world population Stuttering is an affliction that affects every ethnicity and every culture equally, some sixty million people worldwide. Five percent of children stutter. Typically this debilitating condition emerges when a child is between the ages of two and six. Twenty percent of these children will continue to stutter as adults. Although it is so pervasive, there is great misunderstanding about stuttering. Socially isolating those it strikes, the disorder prevents them from the kind of candid discussions that would help them gain an understanding of it. In turn, social isolation creates misconceptions. In Understanding Stuttering a writer who is both a practicing physician and former researcher on stuttering examines the medical roots of the problem and, hoping to bring alleviation, shares his findings. He defines stuttering as a medical condition that is neurologically based or inherited. In clear language he explains the basics of brain anatomy and function, tells of the latest scientific advances in diagnosis and treatment of stuttering, and explains the difference in acquired stuttering and Tourette syndrome. Using examples from his practice, he details effective treatments, including speech therapy and medications.

The Valsalva Stuttering Network
Home Introduction Articles Links ... Forum
Home Page
Stuttering (or stammering) is often characterized by forceful closures or blocks in the mouth or larynx (either sustained or repetitive), as well as delays in phonation . There is growing evidence that these behaviors may be the result of the stutterer's instinctive activation of the body's Valsalva mechanism in an attempt to force out words when he or she anticipates difficulty or feels the need to use extra effort to speak properly. This possibility has been generally ignored by speech pathologists and is rarely addressed by current speech therapies. Because they aren't taught to control their Valsalva mechanism, many clients continue to have difficulty controlling their blocks and often relapse, without understanding why. The purpose of the Valsalva -S tuttering Network is to promote research and education about stuttering and the Valsalva mechanism and methods to reduce the Valsalva mechanism's interference with speech and other activities. The Valsalva-Stuttering Network welcomes everyone who has an interest in stuttering and/or the Valsalva mechanism, including persons who stutter, speech-language pathologists (SLPs) and other professionals, and researchers.
