I have 3 1/2 year old twin boys. The better speaker of the two has been stuttering for almost 10 months now. We have started speech therapy (the Lidcombe program) for him but I am having trouble separating the boys to do this. Even when we try to do something fun with each of them they are resisting and fighting us to be together. When forced to separate the one requiring therapy is not speaking or if he does is making silly little sounds. They have a diet of fresh foods, very little preservatives and additives etc. At times they have taken a multi vitamin just in periods of fussy eating which is rare as they eat a very broad range of foods. The one with the stutter has lately seemed excessively tired but has always loved to sleep. At times they do try to talk over the top of each other but we have always tried to stop this and actually stop the one talking over the top of the other to allow the first person to speak. Does anyone have experience or advice to share? Thanks in advance.
