What is stuttering?

Stuttering is a speech disorder. It involves interruptions in the flow of speech. These interruptions are called disfluencies. They may involve:

  • Repeating sounds, syllables, or words
  • Stretching out a sound
  • Suddenly stopping in the middle of a syllable or word

Sometimes, along with the stuttering, there may be nodding, rapid blinking, or trembling lips. The stuttering may be worse when you are stressed, excited, or tired.
