Abstract

Stuttering is one of the most common speech disorders of childhood. It is characterized by involuntary pauses, reiteration and prolongation of sounds and syllables. Oral motor incoordination may make provision of dental treatment arduous. Familiarity with the verbal and nonverbal manifestations of the disorder and with the possible adverse psychosocial implications prepares the dentist best to meet the needs of this unique group of children.
