Hi there, I am very glad for your question. Exercises for stammering Exercises are effective in treatment of physiological causes of stammering. In general, exercises are meant to provide strength to the organs associated with speech including tongue, lips, jaw, trachea and lungs. Many people who stammer have found these exercises to be beneficial in reducing the intensity and in some cases, completely curing stammering problem. The exercises should preferably be done every night in a secluded area, before going to bed. An exercise regimen comprising of the following exercises are beneficial in treatment and cure of stammering. Stammering Exercise #1 Loudly and clearly pronounce the vowels A, E, I, O and U. Be overly articulate and distort your face strongly, every time you utter the vowels. Stammering Exercise #2: Open your jaws as wide as you can without exerting hard. While the jaws are still open, lift your tongue upwards to touch the roof of mouth with the tip of your tongue. While still in contact with the roof of your mouth, drag the tip of your tongue towards the back of your mouth. When your tongues get stretched to the maximum (without hurting), hold there for few seconds. Next pull out your tongue outside the mouth and stretch it downwards as if attempting to touch the chin. Hold in that position for few seconds. Repeat 4-5 times. Stammering Exercise #3: Deep breathing exercise are very effective in curing speech disorders like stammering as they help to strengthen the respiratory organs and to relax neuromuscular tension that builds up in the body. Stammering can be controlled by learning to voluntarily control the rhythm of words by implementation of specific breathing patterns. There can be many variants of deep breathing exercises and one can choose any or all exercises which he/she is comfortable doing. Some of the variants are: A) Inhale deeply through mouth and exhale slowly, immediately after inhalation. B) Inhale deeply through mouth and push your tongue outside the mouth while exhaling. C) Inhale deeply through mouth, at the same time, press your chest muscles inward. Exhale slowly You can have your own variations of these deep breathing exercises, as long as they provide some respiratory motion, swelling of the abdomen and workout for chest and other speech organs. Do not overdo any exercise and bring variations, every one or two minutes. Stammering Exercise #4: Reading exercises are helpful in identification of patterns of repetition of syllables that cause stammering and thus reduce bottlenecks of fast reading. For this exercise, take a text and read it fast without laying emphasis on the quality of speech. Speedy reading will help a subconscious identification of each word. Prefer the speed to the quality of speech. Let the words be wrongly spoken and do not stop on any particular word or syllable. This exercise, if continued for 2-3 months is very effective in relaxing muscular tension and correcting all obstructions of the speech. Stammering Exercise #5 Singing is a very effective exercise for stammering. Singing helps the sufferer learn to better control breath and the phonatory muscles. Another very effective treatment for stammering involves participation in theatrical activities. Theatre helps shed down several inhibitions and is very effective remedy for stammering. Lifestyle Changes to Treat Stammering Fighting inferiority complex: Developing confidence in ones own ability to speak correctly is probably the only real solution to cure stammering. However building self-confidence when one makes nervous mistakes in every sentence is not easy. Inferiority complex is natural in people who stammer. Dealing with this complex is the most paramount task in overcoming stammering. Talking openly when the person approaches with the subject is vital in handling this complex. Maintaining a relaxed environment at home gives the child an opportunity to speak without stress. Watch out your breath: As a general thumb rule, one should breathe from the belly and not from the chest. Breathing from the belly naturally calms down and relaxes nervous and muscular tension and is a helpful habit in curing stammering and related disorders. Family support: Family support is of vital importance in treatment of stammering. Family members should use all possible means to deliver the person of his state of anxiety which is the only cause of stammering in a large number of cases. Family members must: Not punish or react harshly on a person who is stammering Listen carefully, when such a person speaks Adapt to speak slowly and not interrupt when a person stammers Be patient and wait for the person to complete words Not complete sentences or words when such a person is trying to speak. Consulting a speech therapist: Speech therapy has been used to cure or reduce the intensity of stammering. Speech therapist try to diagnose the causes of stammering and accordingly prescribe exercises, medications and/or scalpel intervention in certain cases. In case of physiological defects, speech therapy is compulsory to treat stammering. While speech therapist mainly concentrate on speech corrections, they may also adopt psychotherapies like hypnosis, impoco, role plays or cognitive behavioral therapy, if diagnosis suggests a psychological cause for stammering. Many therapist also use acupuncture, yoga spa treatment and other relaxation techniques to assist in treatment of stammering. Many cities have specialized speech therapy centers which offer intensive cures and therapies for stammering. Hearing aid: There are also some hearing aids that help to reduce or eliminate stammering. The electronic device records the user’s voice using a microphone and sends it back to his ears after a delay of about split seconds or at a slightly different frequency. Simultaneous speaking and the ability to listen to how it is heard by others is very effective in helping one who stammers correct his errors. Though familiarization with the device may take up to a few months, they often succeed in breaking the psychological barrier that prevents normal speech. Once the barrier is broken and the practitioner gains confidence, he/she can start speaking normally without using the device. Food for those who stammer While there are no particular foods that can be used to cure stammering, some food are known to be beneficial for speech organs. For instance, chewing Indian gooseberry, Almonds, Black pepper, Cinnamon and dried dates are known to clear speech congestions. Thus they can be taken internally in moderate quantities to address symptoms of stammering. Other recommendations for Treating Stammering Stammering is known to be aggravated by fatigue, anxiety or nervousness. A positive environment at home and at workplace is of paramount importance in helping a Person who stammers cure his disorder. Above all, stammering can not be cured overnight. It takes time and patience but the rewards at the end of it all are really worth the time. Stammering Trivia What’s common amongst Aristotle, Churchill, Darwin, Moses and Rousseau? Ans: They all stammered! I hope this helps. I wish you a very quick and speedy recovery.

Drink water:- drinking water is great for your vocal health. Load up on h20 to keep your vocal folds hydrated, healthy and ready to go. Breath down low:- in order to get a strong, healthy singing voice, you must utilize your lungs and diaphragm, breathing low and deep. Tighten your diaphragm when you sing:- this will make your voice stronger. Keep good posture.

Lisping could be due to physiological and psychological reasons. Among the physiological factors are the functioning of the tongue, the vibration of the vocal cords, the cleft of the pallet etc. You need to first identify wether it is a developmental issue by consuling a speech language therapist (slp. Once that is ruled out then you need to address the psychological issues.

Most often children just need a little more incentive to get them talking 1. Eat something your child loves in their presence with out offering them any. When your child indicates that they would like some, model a more advanced way for them to make the request, whether it is using a sign, a word or a simple phrase. For example, if your child points and grunts to the candy, model the sign for candy then wait and see if your child will imitate the sign candy. If your child simply keeps pointing and grunting take his/her hand and help him make the sign for candy then reward him/her with the candy. 2. Play with something your child loves but don’t offer to share. For instance if your child loves playing with playdough and wants to participate in the fun, you could model the /p/ sound for “please” or “play,” or you could model the signs for please or play. If your child can already say one word model a two word phrase for him/her to imitate like, “play please.” 3. At meal time and snack time give your child bite size portions, rather than dishing up a whole serving for them, then wait for them to request more. If no attempt is made model the sign “more,” help them make the sign, or model the /m/ sound for them to imitate. 4. Limit your child’s access to things like the t. V. Toys, food, or going outside. Set it up so they have to make a request or ask for help to access these things. You may accomplish this by putting favorite things up high or locked up. 5. Play turn-taking games such as rolling the ball back and forth, or pushing a car back and forth. Once your child expects another turn hold the car or ball and wait. Look at him/her expectantly if no sign or verbal request is made, model an appropriate request such as the sign for “ball,” the /b/ sound, the word “ball” or “ball please”… 6. Use tight containers to store things in. When your child indicates he/she wants a cookie you might hand him/her the cookie jar (tightly sealed of course), when he/she can’t open it and hands it back to you make him/her sign open or help. 7. Use wind up toys or other toys that are difficult for kids to operate on their own. Wind up a wind-up toy your child gets a kick out of then hand it to them when they want a turn, wait for them to request help by using the sign or the word to operate the toy. 8. Blow bubbles then screw the lid on tightly and hand it back to your child for their turn. Wait for them to request help with a a sign or a word. Model the sign or word if necessary Consult Speech Pathologist.

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, the best option is stammer therapy. Take care.

Hi firstly get a flexible laryngoscopy done to look for the condition of your voice box. Depending on that doctor would be able to tell you why your voice has become feeble. No medications will help for this problem. And if you had accident that might have injured tissues in the neck will take sone time for it to heal. Do consult a speech therapist after the ent consultation. Take care.

Hello, there is no medicines and surgeries for stammering. It requires your dedicated and constant monitering and excerises of co-ordinating breathing voices and articulation. It takes your patience and persistance to stop stammering. 1) donot worry about why it came as science has been trying to prove the causes since they came to know about the stammering. 2) if your speaking very fast slowing your speech is very important and first in stammering. 3) there is a speech jammer apps available on android market freely downloadable which will help you spesk slowly and fluently. 4) practice reading slowly. 5) most importantly you need to consult an speech language pathologist at the earliest. Thank you.
