Stuttering Disease Understanding and Treatment Algorithm
Childhood-onset fluency disorder, also known as stuttering or stammering, is a common multifactorial speech disorder. It is a disruption in the fluency of verbal expression characterized by involuntary, audible, or silent repetitions or prolongations of sounds or syllables. These are not readily controllable and may be accompanied by other movements and by emotions of negative nature such as fear, embarrassment, or irritation, and are normally seen with recurrent prolongations, reverberations, or blocks of sounds, syllables, phrases, or words.
As it is a disorder in the fluency of speech, in addition to involuntary repetition and prolongation of sounds and syllables, there is also “secondary stuttering behavior,” which occurs as a response to the core stuttering behavior. These can be further explained by the example of “flight behaviors”, varying from choosing synonyms for the feared words to opting for social isolation to avoid speaking and concealing the stuttering out of anxiety, frustration, and shame. There are also “fight behaviors” varying from unnatural eye-blinking to involuntary movement of the extremities.
Stuttering arises, in general, before age 6, usually between 2.5 and 4 years of age. The most common form of stuttering is referred to as developmental stuttering. This may be contrasted with other forms of stuttering, which, for instance, arise from a neurological condition, trauma or emotional stress. Clinical diagnosis typically measures the rates of stuttering disfluencies while reading or during free speech and can include the rate of ancillary symptoms, sometimes known as struggle behaviors, during speech. The disorder resolves in most individuals, either spontaneously or with the help of speech therapy; however, approximately 20–25% of cases do not resolve, leading to a condition known as persistent developmental stuttering, which affects about 1% of the general population.
Stuttering is usually diagnosed by a speech-language pathologist (SLP), a health professional trained to test and treat individuals with voice, speech, and language disorders. The SLP will consider a variety of factors, including the following:
Child’s case history (such as when the stuttering was first noticed and under what circumstances)
An analysis of the child’s stuttering behaviors
An evaluation of the child’s speech and language abilities and the impact of stuttering on their life
When evaluating a young child for stuttering, a speech-language pathologist will try to determine if the child is likely to continue their stuttering behavior or outgrow it. To determine this difference, the SLP will consider such factors as the family’s history of stuttering, whether the child’s stuttering has lasted six months or longer, and whether the child exhibits other speech or language problems.
Some aspects of stuttering are apparent, while others are not. A speech-language pathologist (SLP) can make a comprehensive and reliable diagnosis. Stuttering is more than disfluencies, so it is important to see an SLP for testing.
Different guidelines and expert committees have designated different parameters for classification of stuttering.

Stuttering is a DSM-V psychiatric condition for which there are no FDA-approved medications for treatment. Medications with dopamine-blocking activity have shown the most efficacy; however, they can be limited by their respective side-effect profiles. Other agents have been tried with limited efficacy, but newer medications with novel mechanisms are showing promise in the pharmacologic treatment of stuttering.
Speech therapy can teach the one affected how to slow down speech and learn to notice when they stutter. The person may speak very slowly and deliberately when beginning speech therapy, but they can work up to a more natural speech pattern over time.
Some people who stutter use electronic devices to help control fluency.

The total diagnosed prevalent cases of stuttering in the 7MM were observed to be 878,024 in 2021. These cases are expected to increase during the study period (2019–2032).
A total of 409,108 diagnosed prevalent cases of stuttering were recorded in the US in 2021, these cases are expected to rise at a CAGR of 0.8% for the study period (2019–2032).
Among the European countries, Germany had the highest diagnosed prevalent population of Stuttering with 88,573 cases, followed by the UK with 67,196 cases in 2021. On the other hand, Spain had the lowest diagnosed prevalent population.
In Japan, 132,528 diagnosed prevalent cases of stuttering were recorded in the year 2021.
As per DelveInsight’s assessment, for stuttering, the gender-specific distribution of the disease suggests male predominance with 658,518 cases while females were at a lower count with 219,506 cases in the 7MM.

Stuttering Market Outlook
Stuttering is a speech disorder characterized by repetition of sounds, syllables, or words; prolongation of sounds; and interruptions in speech known as blocks. Stuttering affects people of all ages, most often in children between the ages of 2 and 6 as they are developing their language skills. Although there is currently no cure for stuttering, there are a variety of treatments available. The nature of the treatment will differ based upon a person’s age, communication goals, and other factors. It is crucial to work with a speech-language pathologist to determine the best treatment options.
For very young children, early treatment may prevent developmental stuttering from becoming a lifelong problem. Health professionals generally recommend that a child be evaluated if they have stuttered for 3–6 months, exhibit struggle behaviors associated with stuttering or have a family history of stuttering or related communication disorders. Some researchers recommend that a child be evaluated every 3 months to determine if stuttering is increasing or decreasing.
Drugs such as alprazolam (an antianxiety agent), citalopram (a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor), and clomipramine (strongly serotonergic drug) have been reported to reduce stuttering in selective patients
There is no approved drug for the treatment of stuttering. Treatment often involves teaching parents about ways to support their child’s production of fluent speech. There are many treatments for stuttering, however, none of the available treatments is 100% effective. Traditional speech therapy reduces the frequency and severity of a stutter and teaches stutterers to use effective communications skills.
The market size of stuttering in seven major markets was USD 40 million in 2021, which is further expected to increase by 2032 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13.4 % for the study period (2019–2032)
The expected launch of potential therapy may increase market size in the coming years, assisted by an increase in the diagnosed prevalent population of stuttering.
