Stuttering and Stammering

Stuttering and Stammering

We may also call stammering. In the Diagnostic and statistical manual fifth edition, they call it Childhood-onset fluency disorder:


Repetitions or prolongations of speech sounds OR
  1. Hesitations/pauses
  2. Marked disturbance in the fluency of speech. 
  3. Frequently associated movements, for example:
    1. Eye blinks 
    2. Tics
    3. Tremors of the lips or face
    4. Jerking of the head
    5. Breathing movements
    6. Fist-clenching
These coincide with the stutters. 

Tip > both Stuttering and Stammering include S as in heSitations

Compare this to Staccato Speech
