When To Consult A Speech Therapist?

Master of Science In Audiology, Bachalor In Audiology & Speech
Speech Therapist, Delhi

Many a time we see the child reach very late for speech therapy when they cross the critical age for speech and language development. Most of the time either grandparents say that child may talk late as there family member some body was delayed in language development or otherwise some other doctor says child will start speaking at the age of 5 or three. This can happen sometime that child may simply soeak late without any reason or maybe due to lack of stumulation at home. But one should always consult speech therapist for openion. If child is talking late there could be many reason. It may be due to lack of stimuation, may be due to attention difficlity, oral musle weakness, hearing loss, mental retardation, learing disability, autism. One should consult the speech therapist when child is of one and half year of age but not talking or otherwise small kid who has difficulity i. Feeding. If child does not see your face be aloof, like to enage in self play, does not menigal with other children or may be he is most of the time with screen. Do not hesitate to consult a qualified speech therapist.

I would suggest you to take any kind of medicines. For some people social anxiety is pretty pervasive. The most common example is anxiety over public speaking. Making small talk, eating in front of others and using public restrooms also can trigger worry and unease for some. 1. Try a self-help manual. Self-help manuals are designed to supplement therapy, but they’re also good tools for working on your own. 2. Work with a therapist. If social anxiety is stopping you from doing things you want or need to do, or you haven’t had much success with self-help, seek professional help. Find a therapist who specializes in anxiety disorders. You can start your search here. 3. Practice deep breathing every day. It’s helpful to engage in deep breathing before an anxiety-provoking social situation, But practice this technique every day. This way it becomes second nature, and you don’t hyper focus on deep breathing and miss an entire conversation. 5. Create objective goals. People tend to disqualify the positive when they feel anxious, That’s why therapists encourage clients to create objective behavioral goals, he said. These are behaviors that anyone in the room would be able to observe. It doesn’t matter how you feel or whether you’re blushing or sweating (which you can’t control anyway) in a social situation. For instance, if you’re working in a group setting, the objective behavior would be to make three comments. This also gives you a good barometer for judging your progress. Again, you’re not focusing on whether you felt nervous. Rather, you’re focusing on whether you performed the actual behavior. Also, avoid focusing on others’ reactions. It doesn’t matter how your colleagues received your idea in the meeting. What matters is that you actually spoke up. It doesn’t matter whether a girl or guy said yes to your dinner invite. What matters is that you actually asked. It doesn’t matter how your child’s teacher reacted when you declined to volunteer for yet another school trip. What matters is that you were assertive and respected your own needs. 6. Keep a rational outlook. Dispute both bleak thoughts that undermine your performance and fuel your anxiety, and equally unrealistic thoughts that are irrationally positive. If you’re asking someone out, it’s not rational to think, “They’re definitely going to say yes.” But it is rational to consider, “They might,”. If social anxiety is sabotaging your goals and stopping you from living the life you want, seek help and try the above strategies. Social anxiety is highly treatable, You can get better, and grow in the process. All the very best.

I am not able to speak properly I stammer especially when I am nervous or tensed. I can speak fluently with parents but am not able to speak in front of anybody else. It occurs more with some alphabets like m, n, p, j, k etc. What should I do to speak properly?

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, you should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.

Steps for Keeping Your Voice Healthy Drink plenty of water. Moisture is good for your voice. ... Try not to scream or yell. ... Warm up your voice before heavy use. ... Don't smoke. ... Use good breath support. ... Use a microphone. ... Listen to your voice. Begin with the solfege symbol "do" while singing the pitch. Hold out this note to the extent of your comfort. Then, sing and signal the note "re" while holding it out. Then, go back down and sing the note "do."

Social Anxiety Disorder (social phobia) is the third largest mental health care problem in the world today. The latest government epidemiological data show social anxiety affects about 7% of the population at any given time Social anxiety is the fear of social situations that involve interaction with other people. You could say social anxiety is the fear and anxiety of being negatively judged and evaluated by other people.  It is a pervasive disorder and causes anxiety and fear in most all areas of a person's life.  It is chronic because it does not go away on its own. Anxiety reducing medications along with CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), can change the brain, and help people overcome social anxiety. Consult a psychiatrist and get helped. All the best.

Hi lybrate-user. Stammering can be controlled with the help of Speech Therapy. For Stammering purpose, we call it as “ Fluency Speech therapy”. First we need to find out how much severity of stammering do you have (in terms of %age). There are standardized tests to find the percentage out. Based on that percentage we can start working on Treatment plan. Please find out your Stammering Severity first. Then asap we can start working on your speech to be normal. Wish you all the best! For more details please contact. Thanks,

Help you Speech Therapist!!

Master of Speech Language Pathology
Speech Therapist, Bangalore
Its often heard in clinical practice of speech language pathologists and other medical professions about the negative opinions about a/many speech language pathologist (s).

Not many look at the reasons for these disconnections from a service provider and the customer. Most of the efforts to understand this quote two main reasons

Economical constraints and
Unavailability of speech language pathologist (slp).

However, there are more reasons both sides. But its up to you to decide to waste your time reasoning or utilize best the available services.

To the care takers:

He/she is your kid, but not the speech pathologist's - being a parent, your role is central in helping the slp to help you to help your kid.
You need to communicate whats your needs are to the slp. They will tell you if its possible or not. You can ask questions till your doubts are cleared.
Don't be vague in your expectations. It will only hurt you when slp's goals are no way matching your because your slp is working step by step while you are already thinking about the end bypassing the whole process. Ask what can be expected or what is practical.
Slp can not produce results over night, unless he/she is a god or magician.
Each speech pathologist targets the same skills in their own way. Don't impose things by comparing two slps. It can not be measured in mg. In ones comfort zone, efficiency is maximum.
Consistently attend the therapy and then there is chance of improving your understanding about the improvement or reasons if there is no improvements.
Knowledge is good. Share it but not compare.
And more

Note: more suggestions may be updated with feedback.
