Stuttering

My georgous and very vocal two year old DD has suddenly started to stutter. She is concious of it and has been saying things like "I can't talk" and "My mouth won't work" and getting upset and frustrated. It has come on very suddenly in the last 2 weeks whilst we have been on holiday. I am absolutely distraught about it as I can't stop thinking about all the teasing she will have to endure in school if this is a long term issue.

Also - and I hestitate to even put this in writing because it sounds so neurotic - my previous partner's 3 year old son died very suddenly from a brain tumour and in hindsight the only obvious symptom was a deterioration in his speech, so I am worrying about some horrific underlying cause. I can't go to my GP and ask them to investigate when she more obviously needs to see a speech therapist but I am in a total panic.

I can't see any reason why you shouldn't go to the GP. Thats what I would do or call my HV.You dont sound neurotic we would all be the same but dont panic and give your GP a call. xx

I would also go see your GP. If she needs a bit of speech therapy then they can arrange that.

I'm sure there was someone else here who's LO started with a stammer. I can't for the life of me remember who is was though! I'm sure if you explain your fears and worries to the GP they would be able to either reassure you or arrange for the necessarry tests/speech therapy.

If I remember rightly its when their brain is working too fast for their mouths (or something along those lines!)

Get to the GP and speak to them honey. Don't panic until you know what you're dealing with.

Go to your GP to set your mind at ease but stuttering at this age is very, very common. Their little minds have now absorbed so much language structure and vocabulary but their mouths are still learning that their mind works faster than their little mouths can - after all some words are pretty difficult to say if you think about. My son is almost 3, has a slight language delay and has recently started stuttering, rather than stuttering over a letter he will instead repeat the first part of his sentence over and over again until he manages to get past the block and finish the sentence. Try to encourage her to try again SLOWLY, don't show impatience and just let her get there on her own. Trouble is at this age they have SO much to say and everything has to be done RIGHT NOW, patience is like a dirty word to pre schoolers.

A stutter is highly unlikely to be a sign of a brain tumor, speech deterioration is very different to a stutter so please try not to stress yourself (says she who worked herself into a frenzy when waiting for an appointment with a specialist for her son's squint and she noticed that that eye reflected white in flash photography!! (turns out this is common with squints as the retina is at an angle to the camera in the eye with a squint))

Thanks ladies. Yesterday's gashed chin requiring a trip to a plastic surgeon has taken the focus off the stutter today, but she is finding the stutter very distressing and I have promised her that I will find a way to fix it.

It's ironic that my other DD has had delayed speech and we have been taking about getting speech therapy for a while and it is going to be my chatterbox that needs it.

Can I change to subject slightly and ask you about the delayed speech as I am starting to worry about DS. He only says single words and every couple of days he will come out with a new word and in total he can say nearly 60 words. I have had a aletter from my HV to ataend a 2 year review but you can't take siblings so I can't go! So I do plan to call her to discussmy worries but I just wondered what your experiences were?

Jasper, our boys are the same age nd my DS has only started talking recently. Only in the last few weeks has he started to say a few 2 word sentences but mainly parrots words that we say. His language has only just started exploding, so don't panic yet.

How ridiculous that you can't take siblings (a baby) to the appointment.

Newly wed. Please take your little one cause certainly not being stupid or wasting anyone's time. I hope it is just a stage though. Kaynan is three now and has been through various stages. One was blinking his eyes a lot but we ignored it and it stopped. With regards to his speech there is nothing that he cannot say or doesn't know. He talks a lot better than kids twice his age. But just recently he has started to talk sometimes like he is a baby or talking in a different language. We know this is just a phase but he will come out of it by himself. Please keep us informed.

Jasper. Kids all learn things at different rates. Like I've said kaynan is amazing with his speech but his best friend who is a week younger than him still struggles to be understood. It's not that she doesn't know the things she just doesn't say them right. She may need speech therapy in the future but at the moment her nursery school are happy with her, she is happy and she gets better everyday. Your little one is still very young and I would say that all of a sudden all these words will come spilling out and you'll be wishing he was quiet for a minute lol
