What Causes Stuttering?

  • No single cause of stuttering has been discovered, but research suggests that numerous factors contribute to the disorder. The main aspects thought to collectively cause stuttering include:
    • Genetics
    • Neurological Components
    • Language Development
    • Motoric Ability
    • Child’s Temperament
  • While people who stutter may experience embarrassment, anxiety, stress, and fear regarding speaking, stuttering is NOT an emotional or psychological disorder.
