This is called stuttering. I'm really sorry to say that established stuttering can't be cured. But speech therapy helps a little. It can only be prevented at an early age. It happens to develop in children who's parents give too much attention to the speech of the child in early age. Improving confidence in yourself can help reduce it significantly.
