Disrupted Speech: Why Do We Stutter? Stuttering affects 3 Million Americans and makes speaking smoothly difficult. Scientists are learning about what causes people to stutter and genes tell a big part of the story. Stuttering will affect 1 in 20 children. Most will outgrow the disorder on their own or with help from a professional speech therapist. About 25 percent of children who stutter will continue into adulthood. About 1 percent of adult’s stutter and it’s more common in men than women. Those who stutter know exactly what they want to say but are unable to say it at the rate they would like to say it. For those who stutter, communicating with others can be difficult. It can cause anxiety and this in turn can lead some to avoid talking at all. This can affect relationships, self-esteem and quality of life. Many people who stutter will be able to speak without stuttering when in a low stress environment. Researchers are still working to fully understand what causes stuttering. They do know that it often runs in a family’s genes. While stuttering can be an obstacle, there are many resources to help overcome it.
