My three year old has begun stuttering.  Should I be concerned?

Many young children go through a stage between the ages of 2 and 5 when they stutter, repeating certain sounds or words, or having pauses in their speech. In many cases, stuttering resolves on its own by age 5, as the child develops better coordination of the muscles that are used for talking. Since this is a natural stage, be as patient as possible with your child. If your child’s stuttering becomes increasingly frequent, continues to worsen, or is accompanied by body or facial movements, contact your pediatrician for further evaluation and possible referral to a speech pathologist.
