Cluttering

Cluttering affects the fluency of speech but is most prominently characterized by an abnormally fast speaking rate. A person can experience disfluencies but are not consistent with typical stuttering. Other symptoms can include: lack of awareness of the problem; poor handwriting; confusing, disorganized language or conversational skills; misarticulations; social problems; distractibility; hyperactivity; auditory perceptual difficulties and learning disabilities.
