Here’s a few more facts about early stuttering:
Nearly 14% of all children start stuttering by 4 years of age.
About 75% of children who stutter, recover spontaneously.
Only 6.3% recover spontaneously in the first year after onset.
Early intervention remains key in preventing lifelong stuttering.
Children who are treated using the Lidcombe Program are 7 times more likely to cease stuttering than children who are not treated at all.
