In this article, Partha Bagchi, the Founder President of Stammering Cure Centre, writes at length about the actual problem he faced as a “stammerer” and the same problem that numerous others are facing as a result of their stammering problem.

There are many people who think that stammering itself is the problem or the cause of the problem in life. As a result, people who stammer also grow to believe that this misconception is true. But if one tries to look a little deeper, one is likely to find otherwise. At the surface, what one sees is stammering and starts to consider that it must be the problem. What lies in the mind of the stammerer is a “fruit-salad” of humiliation, dejection, discouragement, shame, guilt, embarrassment, depression, under-confidence, resentment, loneliness and envy accumulated continuously over the numerous years of life branded as a “stammerer”.

This “fruit salad” in essence is made with these stale, rotten “fruits” in the mind of the stammerer and has the same toxic effect when one tries to eat it. The mind consequently falls sick because it has been fed this decomposed “fruit salad” of negative thoughts and feelings day in and day out. When one’s mind is filled with the toxins and stench of negative thoughts, the person is bound to develop negative attitude towards self and others as well. This bitterness and pessimism becomes a chronic “condition” that the person has to live with.

When one has to live in this toxic state or mind, the person suffers from a quicksand-like struggle. The person unaware of quicksand or its consequence, steps on it unawares and keeps sinking deeper and deeper in this negativity. The more one struggles to get out of it, the deeper he/she sinks into the quicksand. As a result of this internal struggle, the person’s speech becomes a struggle with ever-increasing stammering as he/she goes deeper into the quicksand.

Partha Bagchi has spoken about stammering, the definition of stammering, the symptoms of stammering, etc. in his previous blog. In this blog, Partha Bagchi reveals the reasons why stammering occurs or the causes of stammering. This blog titled ‘Causes of Stammering’, helps you relate and find out which among the following listed cause of stammering matches with the cause of your stammering. I am sure you will find the actual cause of your stammering through this blog.

Stammering develops mostly from the early age of a person. It is an acquired behaviour not inherited. It is usually caused by multiple factors and their interactions.



Some of the causes that lead to the development of stammering are :

  • Childish imitation of other stammerers either in the family or outside.
  • An after effect of certain serious illness.
  • Feeling of insecurity in the early age.
  • Strict, rude & rough guardianship.
  • Sudden physical or mental shock.
  • Shy or introvert nature from childhood.
  • Very fast speaking habit.
  • Parental fights and misunderstandings.
  • Disturbances and quarrel in the family.
  • Fast thought process.
  • Lack of co-ordination between thinking & speaking.
  • Stiff competition in all spheres of life.
  • If one is bilingual or multilingual, confusion may occur to the child while speaking.
  • Side effects of strong medicinal action.
  • Subjected to tremendous fear and tension from childhood.
  • If the child is left alone for some time without parents or familiar people.
  • When a second child is born in the family.
  • Seeing horrifying scenes in real life or in movies.
  • If the child is weak or sickly.
  • When pressurised by parents to achieve difficult and high targets.
  • When forcibly changed from left handed behaviour to right-handed.
  • The child tries to attract attention and stammers when neglected.
  • If the teacher is strict and always punishes and terrorizes the child.
  • Humiliation in front of friends and class mates.
  • If one is frightened of every little thing.
  • Hurting one’s head due to some accident, specially the back side of the head and
  • If parents and family members all talk very fast, the child is unable to compete with their speed and thus faulters.

Whatever may be the reason for developing stammering, it occurs due to excitement tension fear nervousness hesitation anticipation of blocking and lack of confidence & courage to speak.

In the earlier blog about child stammering, Partha Bagchi, Founder President of Stammering Cure Centre, Bangalore, explored how consciousness on a particular word, sound or letter could eventually transform a “normal”, fluent child to a severe stammerer. In continuation to that article, Partha Bagchi writes to parents and teachers about how they can help their child’s stammering by helping them get over their consciousness over that particular word, letter or sound by offering some tips for parents and teachers on child stammering . 



Here are some tips for parents and teachers on child stammering and guidelines to help their child overcome stammering:

  1. Explain to the child that stammering is not their fault and that they should not blame or punish themselves for their stammering.
  2. Be sympathetic and caring to the child not out of pity for the child because of the child’s stammering but out of your love for the child and the desire to help him/her.
  3. Try to inculcate in the child that the only way to win over your fears is to CONFRONT it. In this case, be with your child and support him to say the feared words, even if stammering occurs.
  4. Help the child to be heard no matter how much difficulty the child may be facing in saying it out.
  5. Don’t complete the sentences or phrases or words for the child as the child will then grow dependent and become “lazy”. Let your child complete the sentences or words.
  6. Work with the child to not dodge or avoid saying the “feared” words no matter what.
  7. Help the child rehearse saying the “feared” words or sounds out aloud.
  8. Do not let your child substitute the difficult words. The more he/she does it, the anticipation and fear of stammering grows.
  9. Relax yourself and your child whenever a “feared” word or sound occurs. Relaxation is the only key to reducing the fear in the child that is due to stammering.
  10. AND LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST …………………                                                                                                               Prevention is better than cure. So before you or the child has to go through all this, you can stop it from beginning altogether. Be sympathetic to the child and don’t play the “perfectionist” by pointing out or scolding him every time his/her speech falters and stammering occurs. Allow the child to learn by himself what is correct and what is not. 

So these were some tips for parents and teachers on child stammering. I hope these tips will be helpful for all of you to deal with child stammering. For more informative articles on child stammering and effective solutions to stammering, follow Partha Bagchi’s future blogs on
