How to prevent stuttering?

New and exciting developments are occurring in researchers' understanding of the genetics of stuttering. Researchers are finding the locations of genes that predispose people to stuttering. While genetic factors will not explain all stuttering, genetics will help to uncover the disability's causes. Speech therapy, especially that performed at a young age, can stop the progression of stuttering. Parents can do a number of things to help their child recover from DS, thereby preventing a life-long stutter. These include: speaking slowly and fluently in front of the child, but avoiding criticizing or punishing his or her rate of speech or disfluencies; questioning the child less and commenting on his or her activities more; refraining from having the child speak in front of large groups; listening carefully to what the child has to say; resisting from completing the child's words or sentences.
