A Answers (1)

  • Treatment options can range from speech therapy, stress reduction, and emotional support, to the use of electronic devices. Various medications have been proposed as treatments for stuttering, but research has deemed them mostly ineffective. It's important to work with a speech pathologist-an expert in speech-related issues-in determining the best treatment for you or your child. The best options will depend upon a number of different factors, including age and severity of symptoms.
