Stuttering is a speech disorder that causes interruptions in the rhythm or flow of speech.
These interruptions may include repeated sounds (c-c-can), syllables (da, da, daddy), words (and-and-and) or phrases (I want-I want-I want).
Repetitions might happen once (b-ball, can-can) or multiple times (I-I-I-I-I want, m-m-m-m-mummy). Stuttering can also include prolongations (caaaan I go) and blocks (person appears stuck with no voice). Secondary behaviours may also be present.
Our therapists are trained to assess, treat and manage stuttering. Speech Moves regularly attend professional development to keep up to date with the latest evidence-based interventions.
