I am a musician. Of late, my voice has become hoarse and when I sing, it is not in tune with the sruti. What could be the problem. This has never happened before. And I have concerts coming off next week. What is the remedy for this condition?
Any remedy for stammering? I am 24 years old. It is not by birth. I get stuck when I tend to speak in public.
I have ear blockage a constant beep sound ringing (no pain) this happened when I woke up from my bed 2 days ago in AC Room. I checked my doctor he prescribed nasal drops and Supradyn for 6 days. And said 1 exercise to follow after taking 5 drops of nasal drops in the nose (closing nose holes and blow air so this will open up the ear block - for 10 times) for morning and night. Compared to the 1st day I feel okay with the ear block but the constant beep noise is still there like the beginning. My Questions are: 1. Am I following the correct treatment/medicine for this? 2. When does this beep sound goes off? 3. If anything else, kindly explain me in detail. Like. (*what should I do? *what test should I take?)
It might happen that you may not find your child, at twelve months to two years of age, at the same level as their peers in verbal communication. You think it's just a developmental problem they are facing and put off seeking professional advice; an intrinsically wrong step to take, because your child might be suffering from Speech Delay.
Delayed speech, or alalia, can be roughly defined as a delay in the development and use of the biological mechanisms that produce speech. Delayed speech is sometimes caused from hearing defect also. A deaf child is always dumb. Before we jump into conclusion of delayed speech, hearing assessment is mandatory.
The symptoms of speech delay are roughly categorized into age related groups, generally beginning at the age of 12 months and continuing through the early adolescence, and they are:
1. Age-12 months
a. It is indeed a symptom if your child cannot point at objects or cannot manage gestures, such as waving good-bye.
b. Another symptom is that if your child does not prefer to communicate verbally as much as his/her peers.
2. Age-15-18 months
a. If your child is unable to pronounce familiar syllables or simply cannot call you even by this time, it's a worrying symptom.
b. You find your child unable to, or simply not reciprocating to 'no', 'hello', 'hi', 'bye'.
c. If your child is unable to extend his/her vocabulary up to 15 words by fifteen months, then it's a symptom.
3. Age-2-4 years
a. You find your child unable to spontaneously produce speech and words.
b. Another worrying symptom is if your child is lacking consonant sounds at the beginning and end of words while speaking.
c. If you still find your child unable to form simple sentences and words, then it is indeed a troubling symptom, confirming the disorder.
The causes for the speech delay disorder are:
1. A primary cause can be physical disruption in parts of the mouth such lips or palate, which may be deformed.
2. Another serious cause can be an oral-motor dysfunction which is the disruption in the creation of the specific area of the brain which deals with speech and communication.
3. The disorder can also be attributed to impairment in the development of the child's intellectual, receptive and expressive abilities.
4. There can also be psychological causes involving school environment and peer relationships which might lead to disruption of speech patterns and reluctance in speech expression and development. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.
