Does everyone's stammer change from one day to the next?

Absolutely, a child's stammer can be different at various times during the day and week, and it can change depending on what you're doing.

Sometimes, when a child or young person isn't feeling their best, like when they're sick or really tired, they might have more moments where they stammer. Similarly, how they feel about speaking in different situations, like talking on the phone or speaking in front of a bunch of people, can affect their speech. This can be connected to feelings like being a bit nervous, super excited, or feeling really confident.

But here's the thing, every child's stammer is unique, and it doesn't follow the same pattern for everyone. For example, one child might stammer more when they're asked questions in class, while another might stammer more when they're having a fun and chatty time with friends in the playground.
