Young children are constantly developing their understanding of language, learning new words to say and ways to put these words together.

In some children, a stammer can occur alongside a difficulty learning to understand words and put them together. In others, a sudden increase in new words and sentences can also seem to accompany an increase in stammering. 

It is important is to talk to your GP or speech and language therapist if you have any concerns about your child's speech or language development. Speech & Language UK also offers information and support that you might find helpful.
