Iris Speaks Early Years Dysfluency Booster Programme

Help your child speak more fluently – Part of our Ask the Expert Series

Is it a stutter?

When children are learning to talk, they may go through periods when they repeat the first sounds of words (e.g. ‘t-toy’), or whole words (e.g. ‘my my cup’).  You might also spot your child using lots of ‘uh’, ‘umms’ and ‘errs’ when thinking of what to say.  This is perfectly normal!  The repetitions or pauses will become less frequent as they get older, and your child will still seem relaxed when they’re talking – they will probably not even be aware they are pausing or repeating.

For some children, this period of bumpy speech may last a bit longer, or be a bit more noticeable.  You might see it happening in their speech a bit more than other children their age, or they may be repeating the first sound in words lots of times, e.g. ‘t-t-t-t-toy’.  If so, you can find out more about stuttering in young children by reading our article  >>> http://irisspeaks.com/tag/stutter/

Looking at The British Stammering Association website  >>>https://www.stammering.org/help-information/parents/under-5s/does-your-young-child-stammer-bsa-leaflet.  If you are concerned that your child is stuttering, particularly if your child seems to struggle to get their words out lots of the time, please ask a Speech and Language Therapist for advice.  You can access support via your local NHS service or ICAN.  Iris Speaks also offers consultations where we would be happy to listen to your child talk and discuss any concerns you have.

Alfie was really engaged in the session with Alys – which is just fabulous! I’m glad I started this process and although it’s early days I’m excited for the future and what he can achieve.
