2 year old studdering

Okay, my DD who turned 2 in september has started studdering this week. Monday was the first time I noticed it and it's gotten progressively worse. Should I be concerned? She was talking just fine! Tonight she could hardly get her words out???

Thanks,

courtney

That is pretty normal. Her understanding of language is much more complex now, and she is probably trying to put together sentences, but it is a lot of information to keep straight. My DD is two on Sunday and when she tries more complex sentences she often stutters.

If it becomes such a problem that you cannot understand her, or you start to worry, you can always call your ped for an evaluation. Though my chatty cathy DD never utters a word at the doctors...the doctor could refer you to a specialist if they think it is warranted.

You can also contact ECI (early childhood intervention) and they will do an eval for free and will also provide free theapy if it is needed (until age three).

My son started stuttering too, when he went through a language explosion (like a grown spurt for language ). He's been using big sentences since right around his 2nd birthday and he'll be 3 in January...he's still stuttering, big time. I feel like his..is just not being able to verbally catch up with what's going on in his head. But if you're worried about it, I'd definitely just give someone a call.

Not to be nosy, but I noticed it looks like she's the youngest and there's quite a few older ones. Sometimes stuttering can improve if you make sure she isn't having to compete to talk. Like the pp said, stuttering can be pretty typical for that age...if it's "easy" stuttering (where it doesn't seem bothersome to her and there's not a lot of tension/struggle) then it might not be anything. But I thought I'd throw that suggestion out there about making sure she has her time to talk. Sometimes environmental changes can make a big difference with the little ones. Although if you have other concerns in addition (the balance thing), then it certainly can't hurt to talk to your ped.
