Stuttering

Stuttering is a communication disorder where the forward flow of speech is broken by repeated syllables, words or sounds, prolongations, or stoppages of sounds and syllables.

Also referred to as stammering, it can be caused by genetics, childhood development or neurophysiology. Stuttering also can be impacted by environmental factors.
