Dominic is a 4-year-old boy with a number of older brothers and sisters. Dominic began to stutter a couple of months ago. His stuttering involves repeating words or syllables. For example, he might say, “It’s my-my-my turn to go next,” or “I want more a-a-a-applesauce.” He is most likely to stutter when he is excited. His siblings have made fun of him when he stutters and sometimes his parents finish his words or sentences for him.

If this family came to you for advice, what would you advise them to do to help Dominic decrease his stuttering?
