Brief Answer:
Possible seizure disorder?Need confirmation.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam.

I understand your concern.

As per the symptoms you mentioned,this could either point to a seizure disorder or stuttering disorder.

All you need to do is get a EEG of the child during such an attack of unclear speech.

In case if any abnormalities are plotted on EEG,an MRI brain can be asked at a later stage.

Consultation with a expert Neurologist will help.

Further management depends on the test result.

Post your further queries if any,
Thank you.
