This study investigated the problem of speech disorder with special reference to stuttering and the role of the teacher in offering correction, control and helping the stuttering students improve in their language level. The study focused on the general observation of language acquisition among children. Studies on speech defects have traced their developments and critically evaluated them. Stuttering manifests itself when the speaker tends to stammer or hesitate, searching for words or even repeating words with a struggle. Speech defects pose a problem to both the teachers and the learners due to lack of proper communication. Stuttering is one of these defects that may be largely ignored and therefore, this research wanted to fill the gap by documenting this condition to enhance positive responses by the parents, teachers and the general public to the affected children. The goal of communication is accomplished if the speakers participate and absorb fully in the conversation or the discussion. This may not be the case where one speaker has speech problem.It is recommended that the teacher use modifications in efforts to correct stuttering students for enhance learner performance.
