Re: DD speech problems or normal?

My MIL is a speech therapist and she said it is normal at this age. She also said it is better not to draw attention to it.

Re: DD speech problems or normal?

Lots of kids ha e a temporary stutter at that age, monitor it closely to see if it gets worse or continues more than a couple months. If you are really nervous you could go to the Dr

My DS did it, too. Apparently, it's pretty common. It lasted about 6-7 months for him when he was 3, and then he never did it again. Also, I agree with a pp, don't draw any attention to her doing it.

Re: DD speech problems or normal?

Hi! I'm a speech therapist so I get these concerns often. It is very normal for a child so young to stutter. they are still learning new words everyday and learning to put their language together as well. They often stutter because they are trying to think of the word they want to say next or are just having trouble putting their sentence together accurately. Don't draw attention to it. Ask her gently to speak a little slower ( you can call it "turtle talk"). If you notice it gets worse as she gets older or she has other behaviors when she is stuttering such as facial grimaces, tensing of her mouth, eye tensing or is just having a lot of difficulty getting the words out, it doesn't hurt to have her evaluated.
