I am a school based SLP. I just screened a 7 year old girl. Her teacher was concerned that she might be stuttering. She is repeating whole words and phrases quite often. She also used some interjections such as "um". Her teacher has never heard her repeat or prolong sounds. Is this really considered stuttering if a child is only repeating words and phrases? I have been looking on the internet, but most children either repeat syllables or sounds as well as words or else they don't repeat whole words as often as this student.
