Q.

Soon 6 stuttering getting worse

Afternnon Doctor

I have a 6yrs /9 m son who''s stuttering is becoming worse daily . Took him to a dr when he was 4 and was tols that it was because of the introduction of a second language and that it would stop.

He is getting worse and gets teased by other kids . No idea where to go from here.
I stay in centurion and would be grateful if you can point me in the right direction .

Thanks

This is a problem for your son and it makes things more difficult for him if the other children tease him at school.He should be seen by a speech therapist as soon as possible. There are excellent speech therapists in Centurion and in Pretoria.
