STAMMERING IN CHILDREN
Yes, if the psychological barriers are removed and if the child is not made conscious of his speech defect, he will overcome his hesitations.
How long it will take for my child to start speaking fluently?
It all depends on you because if you follow the guidelines set up by the therapist the child overcomes his problems very soon. Very often, the child is not even taken for therapy because by the alterations in the parents behavior towards the child, the child starts speaking fluently.
When should formal therapy begin?
If the child has not started speaking fluently even after the parents have been counseled then he should be taken up for play therapy.
