Not every stutterer is a problem case

If a child often stops in the middle of a sentence and repeats individual sounds or syllables, this does not inevitably mean that the child is a stutterer.

This occurs in very many children as part of their normal linguistic development, lasting up to six months, and does not necessarily mean that a child stutters. The decisive difference between this and 'real' stuttering occurs, among other factors, with the accompanying symptoms connected with speaking, as stutterers frequently react to the impairment of their language flow with behaviour patterns where they attempt to fight against or avoid their disability.

Parents whose child often falters when speaking and makes long pauses should not put the child under pressure by exhorting him or her to speak slowly, for example.
