Stuttering And Its Causes

By Steve Hill

Are you one of the many people who has a stutter? I am somebody who has overcome a stutter and who now helps other people to achieve fluency. This article looks into the reasons why people start stuttering, I hope you enjoy the read.

It can be a very worrying time for parents who realise that their child has started stuttering. Not all people who have a stutter have it from childhood. I have met quite a number of people who were fluent in childhood, however started to stutter when they were an adult. So what causes a stutter?

There are many reasons people start stuttering in the first place. These are some of them:

It can be as a result of a traumatic event.

A family member may have a stutter, and they have picked up the bad speaking habits.

People may copy a friend at school who has a stutter and then it sticks.

An over aggressive relative who is not very patient.

A few years ago, I had a female client who explained how she had developed a stutter. She had been fluent until the age of twenty four. At this age she became pregnant for the first time, she was very happy and excited about the prospects of motherhood and was certainly not prepared of what would happen next.

She was quite nervous about giving birth of the baby and her friends had been winding her up telling her how painful the experience is. She realised that they were only trying to wind her up and basically ignored them.

The day of the birth arrived and unfortunately the delivery was particulary long and difficult. She was extremely shocked about how bad it actually was and for whatever reason she develpoed a stutter after the birth of the baby, who was a healthy boy.

Not all people who stutter have it from an early age, another one of my clients was fluent until the age of nineteen. At this age he had a car crash and this was the trigger to him starting to stutter.
