Researchers at University College London have developed a screening test to help identify children most at risk for persistent stuttering into adulthood. Stuttering is common in many young children in the first few years that they learn to talk, but four out of five overcome it by their teen years. The test is for children as young as age five, and in studies has been accurate in predicting the persistence of stuttering.
