Well, I think first that you have been given some bad information. Programs are available for working with children who are as young as two years old, although of course, it may be that there are none of these near you. The earlier stuttering is treated the better, and I think it becomes more difficult as soon as the child gets in school.
Why not contact Associazione "La Lingua Amara" at Casella Postale 189, I-56100 Pisa Pl. They should have a better understanding than I do of what is available in Italy.
