I’ve stuttered all my life – sometimes severely, sometimes moderately. I’m now in my sixties, and I’m fortunate in that my speech has been quite good in the past few years. But I’m not sure why.
I’ve been wondering whether there are any patterns or tendencies in the way stuttering tends to evolve during the course of people’s lifetimes?
Obviously there are great individual variations, based on individual circumstances: therapy, attitude, state of health, level of anxiety, etc. etc. But is ageing a factor? Do older people tend to be more fluent? Less? Has any research been done on this question?
Thanks for any thoughts on this issue.
