To help a child that stutters is important. Speak with the child in an unhurried way, pausing frequently. Try to increase those times that you give the child your undivided attention and are really listening. This does not mean dropping everything every time she speaks. Asking questions is a normal part of life – but try to resist asking one after the other. Sometimes it is more helpful to comment on what the child has said and wait. Use descriptive praise to build confidence. An example would be “I like the way you picked up your toys. You’re so helpful,” instead of “that’s great.” Praise strengths unrelated to talking as well such as athletic skills, being organized, independent, or careful. Read this book regularly to them to encourage bravery.
