Hi Kim, Your question is a common one! Take a look at some previous posts on prevalence and stuttering symptoms for more info on this. I would venture to say that even though you may not see any kids on the spectrum who stutter, take a look at how fluent their speech is overall. For those who are more verbal, you may see an excessive amount of normal disfluency (interjections, revisions, etc.). Just something to be on the lookout for and consider.
