However, some children, less than 1 percent, will continue to stutter as adults, according to the NIDCD.
Also, if a child starts stuttering after the ages of 8 to 10, the stuttering will most likely continue into adulthood.
The stress caused by stuttering may show up in the following symptoms: Some children may not be aware that they stutter.
Perhaps you have seen the award winning film – which was nominated for 12 Oscars – now you can view the original transcript of the King’s Speech, which was sent to Scotland Yard in 1939, announcing that Britain was going to war.
The transcript – which was broadcast to the nation on 3 September 1939 – can be viewed free at the Metropolitan Police’ Historical Collection – along with hundreds of other documents, artefacts and images detailing the history of policing since 1829.
Over and over again we have tried to find a peaceful way out of the differences between ourselves and those who are now our enemies. Neil Paterson, Manager of the Historical Collection said: “The Met is in such a unique position to have a rich history of documents, photos and images dating back to 1829.
We are very proud of our Collection – which is free to see – and people from all over the world regularly come to view it.” View the transcript below of the King’s speech: The Historical Collection is based at Empress State Building, Empress Approach, Lillie Road, London, SW6 1TR, London, from 10am – 4pm weekdays.
A war cabinet was also formed and people were asked to stand firm and resolute in the battle ahead.
In his first speech, on 3 September 1939, King George V1 said: “In this grave hour, perhaps the most fateful in our history, for the second time in the lives of most of us we are at war. There may be dark days ahead and war is no longer confined to the battlefield.” The new king quickly won the respect of his ministers and his people and his hard work and conscientious manner eventually brought him respect in his war torn country.
Anxiety is one of the most widely observed and extensively studied psychological concomitants of stuttering.
Research conducted prior to the turn of the century produced evidence of heightened anxiety in people who stutter, yet findings were inconsistent and ambiguous.
In light of the debilitating nature of social anxiety disorder, and the impact of stuttering on quality of life and personal functioning, collaboration between speech pathologists and psychologists is required to develop and implement comprehensive assessment and treatment programmes for social anxiety among people who stutter.
