Can someone help with the cause of this?
I am 15 years old and I have never had a problem with stammering, or any other speech defects. But occasionally I keep struggling to get my words out, and it's quite embarassing, then the other day I had to do a speech in front of my whole class. I was so nervous and it got worse throughout the speech and by the end of it I felt so embarassed, and in any other situations where I feel under pressure it gets worse, and I thought it was just nerves, but it happens even when I'm just in normal condition, and it is just a recent thing. Nothing traumatic has happened and I haven't had any head injuries (if that helps) and I was just wondering what it could be.

Stuttering Foundation on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/stutteringfoundation
"Self Therapy for the Stutterer" published by The Stuttering Foundation of America worked wonders for my family members who stuttered after working through it step by step. The book can be found here http://www.stutteringhelp.org/Portals/English/book... . It is great for those who do not have access to speech therapy.

If you are prone to stutter, stressful situations make it worse. The more you try not to stutter, the more you will. Not being able to get sounds out is a form of stuttering. The Stuttering Foundation has self-help materials as well as referrals to qualified speech therapists in your area.Source(s): www.stutteringhelp.org
