Advice for parents who have children who stutter
Filed under: Development/Milestones: Babies
Stuttering is an involuntary repetition or extension of certain sounds that can be triggered by genetics, other speech disorders, stress and neurophysiologic abnormalities. The Stuttering Foundation recently offered a few suggestions to the parents of children who stutter:
- Speak slowly and clearly to your child.
- Try to convey in your facial expressions and other body language that you are patient and listening to what she has to say, not to his or her stutter.
- Let your child speak freely, and comment when necessary on what he or she has to say.
- Have quiet time alone with your child each day, without interruptions or distractions. Having your undivided attention will help build your child confidence and encourage her to talk freely.
- You and other family members should be conscientious about not interrupting, but listening carefully. Everyone should talk in turn, and not rush others.
