Don't panic.  Your right it's probably developmental.  My daughter stuttered for several months not long ago.  It seemed worse whenever she was excited.  Recently we noticed that we hadn't heard a stutter over the past couple of months, so I think she is done.  There is alot of good professional advice online.  All consistently recommended the instructions that Kizudo posted.  We waited patiently for our dd to complete her sentence.  We didn't finish the sentence for her.  Then we calmly repeated the sentence.  I was especially worried because my grandfather has stuttered his whole life.  I thought there was a good possiblity that her stutter was genetic, not developmental.  But it looks like her stutter is completely gone - hooray.

Good Luck, Lori

That's excellent, Lori!

I hope to write my own "hooray" post, too!  Watch (and pray) for it!

So we went to the chiropractor today. 

As I said earlier, they are quite familiar with treating kids who stutter.  Our doctor was very clear though in that not all stuttering is caused by something being misaligned - that there are, in fact, many things that are suspected that cause it. (This was also told to us when we spoke to a speech pathologist the other day. She said that "they" can't precisely say what causes stuttering as there is no one common denominator.  She used the term "multifactorial".) 

Anyway, he showed us on a diagram what areas of my son's neck can affect speech but, again, if this stuttering is not caused by his mechanics being "off" then, of course, what he does won't make a difference.  He did some neck massage (and showed us how to do it at home) and he also snapped his neck twice (of course, we were nervous about this, but in the end we trusted him - he's got a great reputation in our city). He said that often a trauma of sorts is what kicks it in if the child is disposed to it anyway.  Thinking back, my son fell on his head (yes, his HEAD) about a month ago, but I think that his traumatic moment was last Friday (this was when it really got BAD). I had jerked him up off his chair and bent him over the kitchen sink as I frantically tried to wash out the paint he that he had "want a taste."  It seems, to my recollection, that it got bad after that moment.  That's why I'm praying that this chiropractor theory is right.

He also suggested giving him extra vitamin B.  We already give him Poly-Vi-Sol but apparently there's a drop form of vitamin B out there.  He said that he used to give his kids gel casules of vit.B.

I'll keep you posted.

 know it's quite distressing for you but I can assure you, it'll pass. My 6 year old stuttered badly from about 3 years old and it just have lasted about a year. There were times when it got really bad- when he was excited especially. I felt really bad and wondered what I did wrong! I was scared he'd be bullied in school and all. We saw a speech therapist and wentthrough some exercises with him which I'm not sure helped much but it got less and less until one day we looked back and realized he was speaking fluently.

A lot of kids stutter, for some it's part of language development where their brain is much faster than their mouths can articulate the words! Eventually they'll learn to slow down.
Hope everything goes well with you.

My update:

The other day we heard a bit of stuttering from my son and realized that we hadn't been hearing it for quite a while!  I can't say for sure that it was the visit to the chiropractor, but I can say that I'm glad we went.  Every once in a while now my son will repeat his sounds but it is not near what it was last month! 

Maybe it was a developmental "skip", or maybe a physical/mechanical issue...who knows, but when you're in that place you do what you can to help and at the time we thought it wouldn't hurt to see a chiropractor.

Anyway...that's that and I hope it's my final update smile

my 3 year old who is very well spoken most of the time stutters every few months
it normally last about 3 weeks
we never talk about it or tell her to slow down
most of the time i don't think kids are aware of it till someone tell them
we have tried a few things which seem to help
one is to stop whatever i'm doing get down on her level and hold her right hand
other thing is to gently but firmly stroke the base of her head down to her neck
(this also helps when kids are upset or frustrated)
crawling and any other cross patterning things you can do
(all these things help with brain processing)

and most of all remembering that it will pass
a parent being stressed will make a kid stressed

one thing we noticed was that she seemed to ether have a big leap in development or language
and thus more to say
like her brain was working faster then her mouth
or that there was some kind of stress like moving or a change of some sort
anyway hope this helps

Not sure if this will help or not,  but I know a little 4 yo who stutters because he has difficulty pronouncing some sounds.  As soon as he encounters a tough word (which is in almost every sentance) he starts to stutter.   His older sister did the same thing & speaks perfectly for her age after having speech therapy.  I am sure there are many causes, but I thought I'd mention this.

great news, just keep in mind that children speak at different ages and you have to give him time.

and most of all remembering that it will pass
a parent being stressed will make a kid stressed ...
like her brain was working faster then her mouth

tatianna, my grandson does not exactly stutters but as kmum said when saying a word that is hard for him i see he is delaying like giving instructions to his mouth as to what or how it has to be said. I see his brain is faster. So i patiently hear him and when he finish i repeat it and he says it again with no cutting words.
