Just started stuttering all of a sudden.

My 2.5 year old son has been talking since he was about 16 months old. He has a very large vocabulary and has always been very easy for others to understand. In the last week he started stuttering. It's the strangest thing. Is this common?

I had a daughter who did this - the experts told me that her brain was working faster than her mouth so the stuttering happens. Just be paitient and DONT finish his sentances! His mouth will catch up. I would wait about 6 months or so to see if it clears up on it's own and if not you can get him evaluated. It is most likely nothing, but if you want an expert's opinion you can contact your local elementary school for a free speech evaluation. Hope this helps!

Thank you, Karten. I kinda thought that was the case. My older son might have had a little of this but not like Miles. Appreciate it!
