Default Abnormal: Stuttering, Symptom or Just Something That's Happening?

So the last 3 days or so, I noticed my son who has NEVER stuttered before, started stuttering. He is 7. He complained of a headache all weekend, but today seems perfectly fine and acting normally, other than the stuttering.

IDK, it's just the last few days, but it makes me wonder: is this just something that's happening because it was going to happen or is something more serious possible? I'll be calling his dr tomorrow to see what they say, just wanted to see if anyone else had any similar things going on.

I had a 3 year old here who would do that once and a while. For him it would happen if he was nervous about something. The dr wasn't concerned and said he would most likely outgrow it

7 seems a little old to begin stuttering suddenly, but I doubt it is due to something serious. Any changes recently or something he may be feeling anxious about? I remember my brother started stuttering when he started school and we figured out that it was because he felt like he had to quick get out his thoughts or no one would listen. We started to tell him to slow down and that we were listening and the stutter disappeared. I don't think stuttering is really linked to any medical conditions.

I agree that 7 is a tad late for it to begin also.

If you can't put your finger on anything new or different or anything that's happened recently, it may warrant calling his ped.

Here's a little handout our school system gave me a few years ago, and a one-page summary.
I also have a booklet with more information. It's old, but I have used the techniques with several of my child care children over the years. It was given to me by one of my parents who was a special ed teacher, whose own child had a stutter sometimes. Let me know if you want it, and I'll see if I can get it to you.

(I didn't mean to attach the page ending in 007 - can't figure out how to delete it.)
