“Cluttering? How about talking too fast?” 

Cluttering is as common as stuttering according to recent estimates. Still, it is often not recognized as a stand-alone disorder: most people think it is “just” something like talking fast, sloppy or unclear, which can be easily addressed. That means there is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding about cluttering.

Discovering cluttering

I never knew how to explain what went wrong with my speech. I couldn’t really call it stuttering, but didn’t know what it was, either. I just thought I was being clumsy, “floundering” with my words. Never would have guessed that there was actually a name for what I did.

Alexander D., person who clutters

I always thought I stuttered, that was exactly what people told me. Yet I have never felt completely at ease with this term; I knew I “stuttered” differently from others, I never really got stuck in my words. The strange is; I had never heard of cluttering, not even from my speech-language pathologist

Jasper S., person who clutters

When my daughter and I found out that she didn’t stutter but clutter, a whole new world opened up to us. For years we had been looking for a therapy that was effective, but none was. Now we know that cluttering is (much) different from stuttering. I would have liked to have that knowledge much earlier.
