Stuttering vs Cluttering?
Developmental Stuttering affects 1% of the population and over 3 million individuals in the USA. However, there are less known fluency disorders that include neurogenic stuttering and cluttering.
Both disorders involve disfluencies or repetitions. Both disorders can co-occur.
How does stuttering differ from cluttering?
The differences are seen in the symptoms:
What gets stuck:
Types of disfluencies
Difficulties pronouncing sounds in words
The rhythm and melody of one's speech
How it sounds
Emotional and Cognitive components
Social aspects of language
