Stuttering impacts the flow of speech. Stuttering moments are categorized whole or part word repetitions, interjections, and prolongations of sounds. Some individuals who stutter may appear out of breath as they speak, and sometimes sounds appear to be completely blocked, or stopped as the speaker is talking. Some examples of stuttering are part word repetitions, such as "wa-wa-wa-water”), interjections (“I am um-um-um-like-uh reading a book.”), and sound prolongations (“sssssslide”).

At NPT we teach strategies help your child regain control and build confidence
