My oldest DS (3) has never had speech problems. EVER.
He was talking in sentences at 1.
He does mispronounce words sometimes but never to the point o where you can't understand him. Well when he was 2 he mumbled a lot so if you weren't listening sometimes it was hard to hear. But over the past 6 months we has really worked on him talking more slowly and more clearly.
Well over the past couple of days ( since the last time he came back from his Dads house actually) he has been studdaring. It's not every time he talks but it's pretty often. I noticed it is worse he is excited or in a rush.
It also seems to be more at the beginning of his sentences.
Like he will say "I-I-I-I-I want want something." or "Muh-Muh-Muh Michael took my-my-my toy."
But I have noticed him do it in the middle of a sentence too.
DH didn't really notice until I pointed it out.
It is starting to really cocern me.
I noticed it over 10 times just today.
I have no idea what I should do...
Should I try to do something to correct it?
Should I just see if he stops on his own?
Should I help him finish his sentence?
