    There are four factors most likely to contribute to the development of stuttering: genetics (approximately 60% of those who stutter have a family member who does also); child development (children with other speech and language problems or developmental delays are more likely to stutter); neurophysiology (recent neurological research has shown that people who stutter process speech and language slightly differently than those who do not stutter); and family dynamics (high expectations and fast-paced lifestyles can contribute to stuttering).

    Forcing a left-handed kid to be right handed can cause stuttering. This is probably the reason King George 6 stuttered.
    See the movie'The King's Speech' Excellent.
