Stuttering is a speech disorder in which the speech is disrupted by involuntary repetition or prolongations of a word, syllable or phrase with silent blocks during speech in which no sound is produced. Stuttering may worsen with excitement, fatigue, stress, self-consciousness, pressure or rushed speech. Speaking in front of a group or talking on the phone can be particularly difficult.
Researchers do not know the causes of stuttering, but studies show that factors may include genetics, language development, and brain signal abnormalities.
