- Normal developmental stuttering occurs in children ages 2-6. Why? Because during this age, children are learning and developing their language skills at a rapid rate.
- If stuttering or disfluencies persist for longer than 6 months or your child shows physical symptoms (i.e. eye blinking, tension of the face, or looking away), it is a good idea to pursue an evaluation.
