Diagnosing a stutter will mean meeting with a speech-language pathologist (SLP).
During the evaluation, the SLP will write down the number and types of disfluencies produced by the person in different circumstances. Also during this time, how the person reacts and deals with the disfluencies will be evaluated. During this time the SLP may try to gather information on teasing that could affect speech. Once diagnosed then they will determine how much daily life is affected by the speech.Diagnosis of a stutter

My mother noticed that my brother, Trent, first began having problems pronouncing his name at the age of two. We figured that it was just simple developing his language and speech. When he was four, he went to the doctor for a regular check-up and the doctor noticed his speech and then really began looking into it. He was then diagnosed with Ankyloglossia at the age of four and then had his tongue clipped a few months later. After getting his tongue clipped, he started speech therapy- in which they worked with his tongue on strengthen and loosening the muscle. After that he then moved to more of how to pronounce certain combinations of letters. He will be done with speech therapy this year at the age of 9.Personal
First start off with reading the sentence “My name is C----------”. In this case you would pause on the C sound and hold it with little sound. This is a form of blocking which can easily frustrate those who are trying to communicate with others because it feels like you can’t get words out.Simulation 1
Start with the word daddy, and repeat the first syllable so you would read “da-da-da-da-daddy.” (click here for an example-- http://www.d.umn.edu/~cspiller/stutteringpage/movies/repetitions.mov )
Then there is the repetition of inserting a weak vowel sound and then repeating so then read “buh-buh-baby”. The buhs should be bays. (click here for an example-- http://www.d.umn.edu/~cspiller/stutteringpage/movies/schwa.movSimulation 2
Begin reading “mmmmmmmommy”, in which you are holding a sound for longer then needed.
