I had started a conversation asking if my 2 1/2 year old son was gifted... but recently, he started stuttering a lot. He would say the first sound of a word and would get stuck on it for a second. He's still very interested in reading and would speak in complete sentences. However, it would take him a while to say certain words, repeating the first sound about 4-5 times, even words he had learned a long time ago. He still has a vivid imagination and adept at learning new words and concepts, but his unexplained stuttering is making me worried. He sings to himself without stuttering but when he engages in a conversation with me, it would take a lot of patience not to finish his words for him. Is this something to be worried about? Any advice would help.
