 "​Stuttering"​ and "​stuttering problems"​ are often separated into two different categories. ​ Franklin H. Silverman defines "​stuttering problem"​ as abnormal speaking behaviors exhibited by persons who stutter as well as to the undesirable behaviors, attitudes, and feelings caused by their attempts to cope with (minimize) anticipated negative reactions to their stuttering. ​ Such attempts include not speaking in certain situations and not pursuing a desired vocation or advocation. "​Stuttering"​ and "​stuttering problems"​ are often separated into two different categories. ​ Franklin H.

 +=====Severity of Stuttering:​=====
 +
 +The severity of a person'​s stuttering is determined by the amount that he or she stutters along with the amount of negative impact that stuttering has on the person'​s life.  For example, a person who hardly stutters, but avoids talking could have a much more severe case of stuttering compared to someone who stutters more frequently but continues to speak and use talking as his or her main source of communication.
