  • Breathe Momma....Have you spoken to his doctor?

  • No. Lots of kids start out stuttering and get over it with no treatment at all....

    It helps if he is not facing someone controlling things like his handedness, or any nervous habits he's developed to deal with his anxiety, because those are made much worse for focusing on them.

  • You should speak to your dr and possible have an evaluation done. You could probably go through a birth-3 program.

  • Toddler stuttering is a normal thing. They don't ALL do it, but a lot do and eventually stop. :)
