Since childhood I speak very fast and some times I feel difficult in speaking few words. How to reduce it.

Master of Speech Language Pathology
Speech Therapist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, speaking fast is a common phenomenon. However, if it makes your speech unclear, its always a problem. In order to be clear, you need to slow your speed of speech. Practice reading news paper with slow speed. Make it your habit. Explain your problem to your friends who understand you and practice slow speaking with them as much as possible till you get used to it. Always remember, your speech is not clear because you speak fast. Thank you.

My brother started stammering from 1 year. During speaking he stops eventually in front of someone else as well as family members. Due to this he lost his confidence in himself and now he even do not want to talk to Anyone freely. He fears that if he will speak he will stammer and will be laughed at by others. During stammering he sometimes pronounces a word longer than actual time Or sometimes he eventually stops during speaking and says that the word seems that it will not come from his mouth at that point of time. So I request you to give me suggestion on what I should do for my brother. Thank you.

Dear asked your brother slow the rate of speech whenever speaking someone or discuss with friends, take a small breath to started the words, practice relaxation and breathing exercises at home. Less the nervousness and be freely mixed with other, reduce the secondary behaviors is most important for stammering client. Confidence your self whenever you talking somebody, discuss about the any topic at home with family members. But you consult the speech therapist and evaluate the stammering then take continues speech therapy their are apply some techniques for u, like relaxation breathing exercises etc. That's you practice regularly at home. I hope after take speech therapy your brother's stammering is may be curable, speech therapy is very important got your brother, take speech therapy.

Dear lybrate user. I am sure that you consulted your child specialist about this. What was his advise. Delay in speech is normal upto an age of 2 and half years. Even though there is speech delay, 2 year old child should speak some words, for sure. I suggest you to have a detailed discussion with your child specialist. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Balanced diet is the key. Whole grains, cereals, pulses, vegetables, egg white, fish, fruits, nuts etc do not cause obesity. Physical exercise and balanced life is another important factor. Take care.

Dear, I can understand your problem, but at this age also a speech therapy and counselling can improve your speech. Do not think about your problem all the time. Keep your self busy. Don't worry, boost your confidence. Self help is important. There is no medicine for stammering.

I could understand your problem. For this you have to consult a Speech Therapist first in your city as it's going to be ATLEAST 2 to 3 months Therapy. A visit to a Dentist is important as your Teeth problem should be fixed if possible. This may be one of the causes which has reduced your confidence.

My child is 5 years old. His speech is not clear yet and he is not able to speak clearly. Should I see a speech therapist. Can this treated at home?

MASLP
Speech Therapist, Hyderabad
Consult a speech pathologist for assessment of speech & language skills. If only clarity i. E speech intelligibility is an issue or there is any lag in language needs to be confirmed. Treatment approach depends on severity of problem. Remedial measures will be discussed after diagnosis and frequency, duration of speech therapy needed will be estimated.

I had vocal nodule and recovered from it in around eight months, but still I can't sing. Whenever I try, I feel tightened muscles. Neither I can go high nor low. Even in normal speaking I sometimes feel tiredness. I also had polyp and runny nose which stopped my singing initially. I also have to clear my throat now which I never had earlier. Please suggest me something. I want to sing as soon as possible. I will be very thankful to you.

"For Sinus and Nose problems, try taking steam inhalation for 3 times a day. To know how to take steam, please read instructions below to know - how to take steam inhalation for best results. If problem is not solved in 2-3 days, you may need additional medicines. Techniques to steam 1) Boil a pot of water. 2) Pour water into a large flat pan or bowl. If you use a casserole, water will remain warm for longer duration. 3) Place your head over the bowl at a distance of 1 feet. 4) Cover your head and bowl with a large towel (like a tent), take long breath through your nose and breath out through mouth. Take a break every 1-2 minutes until you feel relatively cooler. Do it for 10 minute twice or thrice a day. If you feel that the treatment is getting too much for you, raise the towel so that fresh air is brought into the area and breathe through your mouth a couple of times and then resume Take care - Take all precautions while dealing with hot water. Also, keep children away and wan others that you are dealing with boiling hot water. Other way is - by an Electric steamer available in market and take steam through it. It is more convenient. "

I am male. I am singer. But my voice is still not nice. Please help me to get bright and bass voice.

Best and safest food for becoming a nice singer is strict vegetarian diet and to take fruits in day time and cow's milk in night time about three hours after dinner. Avoid foods which are not too salty, oily, pungent or bitter.

Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

You should go to a dental clinic for physical examination to find out the cause of the disease, because treatment depends upon the cause. May have gingival hyperplasia in this disease gums get enlarged. Gingivectomy is the treatment after confirmed diagnosis.

I am having a voice problem the words spoke by me could not be understandable to the another man to whom I answered it is because I have paralysis 3 years back which I recovered but the voice is not proper.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

What are vocal nodules. Are they common? Is it common with teachers? How often it will take to heal? What are the treatments of it?

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

it is an extra growth on the vocal cords.. because of over use of voice... like in singers and teachers... With proper homoeopathic treatment it should not take more than 6 months... But you will have to consult with more details...

Yes, do not delay as early therapy - Speech therapy is important but first it has to be seen if it is just expressive language problem or a pervasive developmental disorder or a hearing problem. A child like this also needs 2 -3 hours of patient one on one interaction with the mother or father who can - 1. Speak short phrases with the child- will have to learn these tips from someone. Instead of getting the child what they want, show two things and ask if they want this or that- If the child attempts to say the name of the object, give it. However do not frustrate the child. The parent will need to learn these from a trained therapist. 2. Model- Eg on a Slide- Say SSSSlide. Or while pushing the swing - say Push. Bury objects in sand and as you dig them out, name them. Use single words or short phrases. Eg Mom is cooking. Or Mom is eating. Yum. Break words into shorter ones- eg toffee - to Taw and Fee. Talk about the child- eg Karan wants the red car. Etc.
