Some of us who don’t know about stuttering children when they meet will laugh because they think the child is a little normal. Even though we know that stuttering is one of the phases of speech development that is commonly experienced by children between the ages of 3-5 years.
As time increases or stuttering can disappear. The cause of stuttering can be caused by several factors including:
- Genetic factors. This is because the parent of the child has a stuttering disorder so it can open up the opportunity for the child to stutter as well.
- Psychological factors, one of which children experience stress. Where the child stutters in certain situations and is able to talk like other children in general if in a calm, comfortable, and relaxed condition.
- Inborn physical factors such as the tongue is too thick / too short or an abnormality in the structure of the organs of the mouth. Children who experience this condition not only stutter but also often have difficulty speaking, but only a few experience this.
- Don’t often yell at kids who want to talk. Because this will cause the child to be nervous and automatically the child will talk in pieces for fear. This is one of the factors that children stutter.
- Having too many ideas so the child becomes difficult to talk and confused which words should be said first.
Those are some of the factors that cause stuttering in children. Along with the development of the child of course with careful handling, stuttering in general can be lost and he can return to speak well.
