Stammering Awareness Day
Stammering occurs when there are interruptions in the natural flow of speech, characterised by a tense struggle to say some sounds and words. You may hear one or more of the following:
Repetitions of sounds or words Prolongations (stretching sounds) Blocks (where the person appears to speak but no sounds come out)
Stammering can have an adverse effect on a persons' self-esteem and well-being.
