Hi, I am suffering from stammering from last 5-6 years. Can you suggest me some tips.

Masters
Speech Therapist, Delhi
It is better if you start with speech therapy. You can do breathing exercises like deep inhalation and exhalation. Do not increase rate of speech while talking. Work on self confidence. Whenever stutter, take deep breath and start again. For detailed plan, get speech assessment done.

Any remedy for stammering? I am 24 years old. It is not by birth. I get stuck when I tend to speak in public.

Hello lybrate-user Try following:- Breathing and relaxing exercises Speaking about a topic of your choice at a distance and loudly in front of your friends or family but in public (park/ restaurant/ classroom) Initiating conversations in a large group with familiar people. There are more activities that will help your public fear. However the practice of relaxing your facial muscles and body before representing in front of public is very important. Kindly see a speech therapist for detailed step by step guidance. Thanks!

I have a 2.5 year old nephew he is able to speak few basic words like mama ,mummy, Nana,Didi etc  but he is not able ...
By 2.5, child is expected to talk in sentences but some exceptions are possible. You need to get the developmental assessment done in detail if he has issue with concentration OR is he always on the run OR do you feel he doesn't respond to name call OR if he doesn't maintain eye contact while interacting with you all. If you can share a small video of his I might be able to guide.

Doctor I have problem of stammering. I speak too fast and the other person can't understand what I am saying. When I try to speak slowly then I pronounce one word two or three times. And some times when I want to speak something my voice doesn't come out. I have this problem since childhood. How can I cure this problem? Please help me.

Stammering can be made lesser only and only by Speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, I'd suggest you to visit a Psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

This is for child 4 year old. Studies in Jr. Kg. I feel that my child has difficulty in clarity of speech and speaking in complete sentences. He requires language development. He communicates his needs and is quite good with written work in academics but story telling, language related narration is difficult. Also he communicates only in English. Though he understands our mother tongue Malayalam and Hindi, he communicates back only in English. Is there any way you can help him develop language skills. FYI he was premature 8th month baby, but had all his milestones correctly. His birth weight was 1.8 kg. He is very active and playful child.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. I don't see any problems in your child. If he is able to communicate, written work in academics etc, then the other aspects should be due to lack of proper training. I suggest you to consult a psychologist for assessment of learning disability areas including language ability. I too am from Kerala and I wish to speak to you as well as your child. You can contact me through Lybrate. Take care.

Age-Appropriate Speech and Language Milestones!

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health
Pediatrician, Hyderabad

 

The ability to hear is essential for proper speech and language development. Hearing problems may be suspected in children who are not responding to sounds or who are not developing their language skills appropriately. The following are some age-related guidelines that may help to decide if your child is experiencing hearing problems.

It is important to remember that not every child is the same. Children reach milestones at different ages. Talk your child's healthcare provider if you are suspicious that your child is not developing speech and language skills correctly. The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders and other experts list the following age-appropriate speech and language milestones for babies and young children.
