My little girl has always chatted gobbledegook since she was tiny, and has a fantastic range of speech and words since she was about 18 months.
In the last few weeks we have noticed that she is suddenly stuttering over words and sentences. There is no pattern to which words she stumbles on, it seems to be random. It also isn't consistent, she hasn't been doing it so much the last week, but today it's been very noticeable. I haven't noticed that her speech/sentence structuring has suddenly improved as did think it might be some kind of 'leap'.
It is not bothering her, and 9 times out of 10 gets to the word she's trying to say and then carries on as usual.
Just looking for a bit of reassurance that this is a normal thing and not something we should be worried about?
If it's been going in for a few weeks, I would self refer to SLT, If only for reassurance.
Both mine went through this for a short while - brain working faster than mouth?
