What is stuttering?

Stuttering affects the fluency of speech.  It begins during childhood and in some cases, lasts throughout life.  The disorder is characterized by disruptions in the production of speech sounds, also called "disfluencies."  Most people produce brief disfluencies from time to time.  For instance, some words are repeated and others are preceded by "uh" or "um."  Disfluencies are not necessarily a problem; however, they can impede communication when a person produces too many of them.
