9yr Old has Speech Pattern/Rythmn of 5 Yr Old

by Brian
(Albany GA USA)

Daughter has unusual speech pattern/rythmn. It is hard to describe. It has a rythmn like ta da ta da ta da. Or 123,123,123. It is not fluid.

Each word almost has a millisecond pause to the next word.

On the phone she sounds like a 4 or 5 yr old. She does not have any learning issues. Her memory and observation skills are actually above normal. Her communication is fine also.

Questions: Is there a name for this? Will she outgrow it? Is therapy needed?
