Stuttering or stammering usually occurs at the beginning of a sentence or idea rather than when uttering a single word. Studies have shown that different parts of the brain deal with language processing and the formation of speech, and scientists are looking at the coordination between these processes. One study suggests that in stammering people, speech formation preempted the language process. Other researchers are looking at the roles of chemicals in the brain that transmit messages between brain cells.
- avoiding situations where the person finds it difficult to speak, for example avoiding phone calls or various social situations
- keeping silent when the person feels he* will stammer – eg. not saying something he would like to say in a conversation
- scanning ahead for words on which he feels he will stammer and substituting words he can say
- inserting “fillers” – meaningless words or phrases such as “actually”, or “I mean”, to help avoid stammering
- other sounds to try and get out a blocked word – eg. “uuuhhh”
- getting a run up at a difficult word – eg. a person who stammers often finds their name difficult, so rather than just saying “Ethan” he might put a phrase before to help get it out: “My name is Ethan.”

Reality: There is no link whatsoever between stuttering and intelligence.
Myth: Nervousness causes stuttering.
Reality: Nervousness does not cause stuttering. Nor should we assume that people who stutter are prone to be nervous, fearful, anxious, or shy. They have the same full range of personality traits as those who do not stutter.
Myth: Stuttering can be “caught” through imitation or by hearing another person stutter.
Reality: You can’t “catch” stuttering. No one knows the exact causes of stuttering, but recent research indicates that family history (genetics), neuro-muscular development, and the child’s environment, including family dynamics, all play a role in the onset of stuttering.
Myth: It helps to tell a person to “take a deep breath before talking,” or “think about what you want to say first.”
Reality: This advice only makes a person more self-conscious, making the stuttering worse. More helpful responses include listening patiently and modeling slow and clear speech yourself.
Myth: Stress causes stuttering.
Reality: As mentioned above, many complex factors are involved. Stress is not the cause, but it certainly can aggravate stuttering.
