I started stammering since 7 the class. Now I am 24 years old. My biggest challenge is being audible and clear to people. It has created a big hindrance for me while communicating. I cannot talk normally , like others do, which has cost me my last job, as I was into customer service (voice). Please suggest me a permanent solution. I presume this is genetic , as my grand father also stammers .

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.

Mood swings will be better word to describe it. Thinking about future and marriage is not bad but only thinking and not doing any fruitful thing for that is the concern. Try to be social go for walks enjoy some activities which you like doing. You are not sick in any ways trust your own self don't doubt. Take care. For further assistance you can book appointment.

Causes of Stuttering

MASLP
Speech Therapist, Noida

Many young kids go through a stage between the ages of 2 and 5 when they stutter, repeating certain syllables, words or phrases, prolonging them, or stopping, making no sound for certain sounds and syllables. Stuttering is a form of dysfluency — an interruption in the flow of speech.

In many cases, stuttering goes away on its own by age 5; in others, it lasts longer.

There's no cure for stuttering, but effective treatments are available and you can help your child overcome it.

Experts think that a variety of factors contribute to stuttering, including:

  • Genetics about 60% of those who stutter have a close family member who stutters.
  • Other speech and language problems or developmental delays.
  • Differences in the brain's processing of language: people who stutter process language in different areas of the brain. And there's a problem with the way the brain's messages interact with the muscles and body parts needed for speaking.
  • High/increased activity level.
  • Rapid rate of speech.

How to cure stammering? I do not have speech therapist, psychologist in my vicinity. Suggest some proven ways to cure stammering?

You have a problem with fear for sure, which may have roots in your past. The fear has to do with people and more so if they are people in authority. If you deal with that fear, then a lot of your stammering will stop. Talk to a counselor and sort that out. There will still be a residue affect left because of pure habit. This can be resolved by some exercises, which should begin with real earnest right away. Practice speaking aloud in a closed room, but this time, choose words for which your stammer is most. Also, practice singing sentences but ending the last word as a statement that is read. Next time end with two words stated, then three words etc. The lip exercise: with tight pressure press and roll the tip of your tongue against the edge of your lips, clockwise first and then anticlockwise, as many times as you possibly can. Purse your lips into an ‘O’ and withdraw it back stretching it like when you say an ‘E’, several times a day. Drop your lower jaw and flip it left to right and right to left, as many times as you can to loosen it. Practice making a resonating sound by increasing and decreasing the volume within the same breath. Sing the vowels A, E, I, O, U stretching each vowel as much as you can.

Dear lybrate-user. Don't worry. Your voice will change. Usually it changes when you enter the adolescent period. But it could take even some more years. See upto the age of 18. If no change, then approach a speech therapist. Take care.

Stammering could be because of ENT cause or psychological. However even if it is purely ENT also, nervousness, fear of embarrassed make it worse. You need therapy like desensitization to get over it. Try speaking in front of mirror, select the words which are difficult for you ,try replacing with alternate words, give pauses, try speaking like a newsreader etc. Finally, it is something which is not your fault so be fearless. You can also choose a career where speaking is not so important. Try also to use body parts to increase effect of communication.

Hi lybrate-user, you are suffering from stamerring and wanted to overcome this problem. Firstly, you have done a good job for coming forward to tell your problem. Stammering is not a big problem unless otherwise no physiological cause is present. It is only 6 months old problem definitely, we can solve it, medication is not necessary. But can you tell, how you feel when you take medicine for this problem. I want you to consult speech specialist or ENT specialist and let me know the result or status of your problem and then we could get clear idea of what exactly and then, start the treatment for you. Do not worry, there are many ways to overcome this problem. Take care.

My voice is very low which is not heard from 2 or more Meyers so please suggest any medicine or any other suggestions.

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.

Stammering may be the indication of any underlying anxiety problems. See a clinical psychologist who can evaluate and give psycho therapies like relaxation training, cbt and so forth. If necessary the psychologist will refer you to a psychiatrist for medications. It is not a serious problem. If you have a strong will and follow the treatments/practices certainly you can overcome it. All the best.

This is a very common problem due to lack of exposure and lack of confidence. So just take help of your friends and family to discuss and practice. Join some drama and music classes. Don't takes any medicine.

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.

I am 25 year old, I am suffering from stammering from childhood, these create nervousness and depression, lack of confidence in me, suggest me what should I do?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
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.

If she can speak English language without any problem of pronunciation and only problem is with few hindi syllable then she probably do not require speech therapy, she requires attention and correct repetition of those words and monosyllables. Motivate child to speak slowly and reinforce her when she speaks clearly. As a parent you try to speak with her as slowly as possible. Please ask her teacher also to do the same in class.

Lybrate-user. You need to see a speech therapist for your stammering. But if its occuring when you r very much stressed out and excessively worried. You need to mabage your anxiety and stress. Start meditation and yoga read fictional novels brisk walk manage your time by maintaining your time table diary. Write good thoughts and achievements in a diary talk to your frndz pets also reduce your stress start socialising to improve your confidence start speaking in the groups to reduce your anxiety. Do not substitute your speech by gestures. Practice speaking to yourself in front of a mirror. And try your improve your confidence by following your routine work in a time. Take care!
