The speech and language therapist provides assessment, treatment and support for children who stutter or may have a dysfluency. It is extremely important to contact a speech therapist if your child has any form of dysfluency. The speech therapist will work closely with the family, caregivers and teachers of children who stutter as dysfluency can impact a child’s socializing skills, emotions, academic success etc. It is important to treat fluency problems as soon as possible and a full assessment is needed to determine the type of stuttering as well as the secondary behaviors that accompany the stuttering.
