Stuttering is a disorder which affects the flow of speech.

Things to look for:

  • Repetitions of sounds, syllables, words or phrases
  • Prolongation of sounds
  • Blocks (when nothing comes out)
  • Other behaviours such as physical movement accompanying stutter or filler words (um/er).
  • Any negative reactions by the child or others to the stutter
  • Family history of stuttering

If you are concerned your child may be stuttering contact an AIM Speech Pathologist on 6150 8339 or Your child may require a speech pathology assessment in order to determine the presence and severity of the stutter. Our SP’s can then develop a treatment plan for your child.
