Adult Stuttering


Communication is an important part of everyday life for adults, both at home and at work. Yet the seemingly simple act of talking can become a real challenge for those dealing with the condition commonly referred to as stuttering.

Stuttering is a common speech disorder that is sometimes referred to as stammering or dysfluent speech. Some of the key signs of stuttering include repeating words, repeating sounds, repeating syllables, and stopping or blocking when attempting to say words. If you are an adult who is stuttering, treatment and management options are available. Read on to learn more about what Signs and Sounds may be able to offer you in the Sydney area.
