Stuttering, or what is often referred to as a fluency disorder, is characterized by whole or part-word repetitions("the, the, the" or "ba-ba-ba-ball"), silent blocks (pauses), prolongation of sounds ("sssssoap"); often there is obvious tension in the face and neck. Generally children with fluency problems have the most difficulty at the beginning of sentences. Often "wh" words like "where", "when", "what", and "why" are difficult to say when starting a question. They may speak very rapidly when they can get the words out. Older children may avoid saying certain words or phonemes that they personally feel are too hard for them. Children with a stuttering problem generally are shy and hesitant to speak aloud in class; sometimes they have difficulty making friends.
