Tips to Help a Child Who Stutters

  • Listen patiently to what your child says, not how it is said. Respond to the message rather than the stuttering.

  • Allow your child to complete thoughts without interruption, and maintain eye contact.

  • After your child speaks, reply slowly using some of the same words.

  • Wait before responding. This helps to slow things down and should help your child's speech.

  • Spend at least five minutes each day talking with your child in a relaxed manner.

  • Find ways to show your child you value and enjoy your time together.
