Fluency Disorder

A fluency disorder denotes a disruption in the natural flow of speech, marked by irregularities in rate, rhythm, and instances of disfluencies. These disfluencies encompass repetitions of sounds, syllables, words, and phrases, as well as sound prolongations and blocks.
Additionally, individuals with fluency disorders may exhibit heightened tension, avoidances in speaking, struggle behaviours, and secondary mannerisms. The impact of these disorders extends beyond the physical aspects, often leading to psychological, emotional, social, and
functional challenges for individuals dealing with communication disorders.
