Hi Anon,

The cause of stuttering is not completely understood. Some experts have suggested that stuttering may occur when:

  • A child's ability to speak does not match his verbal demands
  • Psychological factors in a child’s life (eg, mental illness, extreme stress)
  • Problems occur in the connections between muscles, nerves, and areas of the brain that control speech
  • Problems in the part of the brain that controls the timing of speech muscle activation
