I come from a family of stutterers (mom and brother used to stutter badly, still sometimes do) so it’s quite a sensitive subject.
My daughter has been stuttering on and off since the age of two. We did seek professional help and were advised to wait as most treatment options were for older kids.
She’s five now and speaks English and Chinese fluently (when not stuttering of course). We use both languages at home and she’s in a bilingual school.
She has been having a stuttering “episode” for the past few months. She regularly blocks on the first syllable of sentences (especially with personal pronouns) and within sentences as well, in English and Chinese. It doesn’t affect her though and she still says everything she wants to.
We are seeking help from a professional as well this time, but I decided to write this post to find out if there are any other parents here who have gone or are going through something similar.
It would be great to hear some thoughts and experiences on the subject of stuttering, and what the options for treatment are in Taiwan. Thank you.
