In brief: Maybe

This speech rhythm and rate disorder affects 5% of children aged 2 - 5.
It may last for several weeks to several years. Stuttering tends to run in families and genes that cause stuttering have been identified. There is evidence that stuttering may be a result of some unusual brain injuries, such as stroke or traumatic brain injuries.
