A 24-year-old member asked:

Do people who begin to stutter also develop a lisp later on?

Dr. Carla Enriquez
Pediatrics 51 years experience
No: A lisp is a tongue thrust articulation problem, but stuttering is a brain problem.
Dr. William Holmes
Child Psychiatry 35 years experience
Not Necessarily: These may occur in the same person but one does not automatically go with the other.
