Oct 22: National Stuttering Day

Speech Therapy Telepractice

Hi Everyone,

It has been a few days since I’ve blogged. I hope everyone is doing well.

I wanted to bring some awareness to National Stuttering Day.  Stuttering affects approximately 2.7 million in the U.S alone.

“Primary stuttering behaviors are the overt, observable signs of speech fluency breakdown, including repeating sounds, syllables, words or phrases, silent blocks and prolongation of sounds. These differ in from the normal disfluencies found in all speakers in that stuttering disfluencies may last longer, occur more frequently, and are produced with more effort and strain.[2] Stuttering disfluencies also vary in quality: normal disfluencies tend to be a repetition of words, phrases or parts of phrases, while stuttering is characterized by prolongations, blocks and part-word repetitions.[3]-Wikiepedia
