"What Causes Stuttering?"

Do you wonder, what causes stuttering or how to stop stuttering? These are very common questions. I believe that one reason so many people are searching for answers to this question is because they believe that understanding the reason "why" will somehow provide them with a solution. However, this is usually not the case.

What causes stuttering is both physiological and psychological, especially for adults. For very young children it has less of a psychological dimension simply because it has not had enough time to form as a part of their identity. If the child continues to stutter as he or she gets older, he or she begins to see him or herself as a stutterer.

Furthermore, they begin to externally alter their personality (staying silent when they really have something to say), and make decisions based on their perceived ability to handle the speaking situation that accompanies that decision. For example, they may not participate in debates, speak up in class, choose subjects or majors, and ultimately careers based on their speech. As the child becomes an adult he this pattern of thinking and speaking become ingrained and extremely difficult to change.

The Pro90d Speech System was created not so much to address the question of “what causes stuttering," but to address the solution to how to stop stuttering, or more accurately, how to overcome stuttering.  Below you will be able to learn about what we do, how we do it, who we are, what others say about us, and how you can learn more about our services.
