This describes the uninterrupted flow of words during speech. Some children develop a natural developmental
dysfluency at the ages of 3-5, where they repeat some words or sentences. This most often resolves by the

develops which is characterized by specific traits. Intervention is highly effective at eliminating
stuttering, particularly in children under 12 years old.
