3. How are they classified?

3.1. By etiologies

3.1.1. Types of disorders by etiology

4. Preschoolers & Determining if a Fluency Disorder is present

4.1. Characteristics of 2 to 5 year olds with potential fluency disorder

4.1.1. 1. Core Behaviors 2. Secondary behaviors 3. Emergence of negative feelings and attitude about stuttering. (Avoidance of speaking when in a group or class)

5. Avoidance

5.1. Word or Sound Avoidance: An individual will avoid a word or phrase by substituting it for something else
