Stuttering is defined as a ‘disruption of the forward flow of speech either by repetitions and / or blocks’. According to research, stuttering is caused by ‘a complex interplay of a number of different factors’. During this presentation, differentiation of different types of dysfluencies will be highlighted (normal dysfluencies and stuttering-like dysfluencies); as well as the difference between stuttering and cluttering. Indirect and direct strategies to be used at home and in the classroom situation will be discussed as well as the overt/covert elements of stuttering and cluttering. Possible causes and contributing factors will also be addressed.
