Stuttering usually begins in childhood, between the ages of 2 and 5 years. While some will recover by age 7 or 8, 1 out of every 100 children will be left with long-term stuttering.
For people who stutter, the observable disfluencies are not necessarily the most important part of the condition. Instead, it is the impact on their lives that causes the most concern. Therefore, speech therapy for stuttering should focus on more than just fluency; it should also account for the ways that stuttering affects the speakers’ life.
