• What is Stuttering?

    Fluency (stuttering and/or cluttering) disorders cause an interruption of the flow of speech that may include hesitations, repetitions, and prolongations of sounds or words.

    When working with students who stutter, a speech therapist may refer to stuttering as "bumpy speech". The goal is to help the student's speech sound "smooth" with no "bumps".
