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. To evaluate your Voice you have to consult the Speech Therapist.

Hello lybrate-user as mentioned above you have puberphonia. Usually as I have observed this long in most puberphonia patients the duration depends on how fast you grasp the proper technique shown by speech therapist. The cost of treatment would vary from therapist to therapist.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Ask a voice coach for breathing and vocal exercises to make your voice more resonant and relaxed. See a speech pathologist or physician for persistent problems such as vocal fatigue or hoarseness. Learn to warm up and rest your voice before and after intense use, such as teaching or coaching. Take care.

Sir mai haklake bolta hu ,mere parents bhut pareshan hote hain. Ki humara beta haklake bolta hai. please koi treatment btaye thik krne ka.

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.

You lead your life very systematically. When your son is in us then you feel depression. Now he is very near to you. So no need of any medicine. If we stop medicine anything happen that is your fear. It has no reason. When we feel happy. It is better to stop medicine. Spirituality is good now. If you have any fear regarding this. Better to attend psychological counselling sessions. They will tell to you. How to lead your present status. Your life style modification. It helps to you very much. It reduces depressive status. It has no side effects. So better to take the help of a very good psychologist. Be sociable and be friendly with your friends and family members. Feel always comfortable and happy it always helps to you very much. Ok all the best.

My age age is 22. I have problem of stammering. So help me to came out this problem.

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.

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

I have to give lot of effort while speaking. After sometime I feel tired. My voice is also not clear. High pitched. Facing lot of problem in public communication. How can I cure it?

Child Aphasia - Symptoms And Treatment!

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Jaipur
Child Aphasia - Symptoms And Treatment!

Child Aphasia is complex disorder that is caused by damage to parts of the brain that controls language and speech. This disorder affects the child's ability to express herself through words and understand the speech of other people. The severity of the problem depends on the extent of the damage as well as the location of the damage. Since this is not a birth disorder, therefore, you should be much more careful as so you notice that your kid is facing language disorder. A speech pathologist can diagnose language disorders and teach your child strategies to help.

What are the leading symptoms of aphasia in kids?

  1. Not understanding speech is one of the most common symptoms. Most patients cannot understand spoken or written language. Typically in these cases, the patient suffers from fluent Aphasia, which is caused by damage to the left temporal lobe of the brain. The patient's speech might seem meaningless and incoherent with lots of unnecessary words being used. The child usually becomes upset when people don't understand what he is saying.
  2. Patients suffering from this disorder also have trouble expressing their thoughts and understanding language and they often take more time to communicate. Only short sentences are used by these patients with words often left out, making the sentence sound incomplete. Such children suffer from non-fluent Aphasia where they understand what others are saying, but cannot communicate or speak well themselves. Their speech is almost similar to that of telegraphic languages that are usually followed by those toddlers who are just learning how to speak.
  3. Some children suffering from Aphasia might have trouble repeating words even though they don't have problem understanding what others are saying. These children suffer from conduction Aphasia and will be able to reproduce only parts of a sentence, if asked to repeat.
  4. Children affected with this disorder may see to be not listening to you or ignore you.
  5. Such kids might also have behavioral problems and may not be able to keep up with their friends and classmates. They will also suffer from forgetfulness.

Causes of Aphasia: The leading cause of Aphasia is brain injury, brain infection, brain tumour or abscess or bleeding in the brain.

Diagnosis of the disease: The disorder is diagnosed by a speech therapist who assesses the condition with a variety of tools to figure out the extent of damage. Its best to take your child to a paediatric speech pathologist who is an expert in treating children with brain injuries. The child will then be assessed on auditory comprehension, verbal expression, reading and writing ability and functional communication.

Treatment: There are many people who think that the speech trouble cannot be treated, but they are completely wrong. There are various ways to treat Aphasia. The younger the patient the better the chances of recovery since the brain is not that developed to handle specific functions in kids as in adults. The treatment will depend on the severity of the condition and the goal that is to be achieved. Factors behind this trouble need to be determined first otherwise the perfect treatment cannot be decided. Some of the most prominent factors are aphasia type, brain-injury cause, age, brain-lesion size and positioning and others.

Some of the leading tips that can be applied as per Association of National Stroke are as follows:

  1. Using props can be helpful in getting across messages.
  2. Speaking slowly and staying calm while speaking.
  3. Drawing pictures or words on paper for communication.

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.

As you r telling the problem, there may be hoarseness of your throat. Avoid cold drink and curd etc. Do gargles of hot water with salt three times a day. Also at night hot milk adding turmeric, sugar ghee you may take 3 days.
