Stuttering affects the fluency of speech and is characterized by “disfluencies” in the production of speech sounds. Some words are repeated and others are preceded by “um” or “uh.” This can impede communication when a person produces too many of them. In most cases, stuttering has an impact on at least some daily activities. The impact of stuttering on daily life can be affected by how the person and others react to the disorder.
