Hi I have been thru your concerns. One thing which you have not mentioned is this behaviour of Agression in his school also I would like to know his behaviour within his peer group the importance of this is that is this behaviour of Agression visible at all places or with his parents only .If the behaviour of Agression is visible everywhere like complaints from the school teachers of hitting other children and disobedience not remaining seated at one place, not able to play harmoniously with his friends, poor attention span than I would suggest to get him evaluated at a Child guidance clinic but if it is with parents only than the reasons of said behaviour should be found. In general I would tell you that behaviours are always learnt which means that it is possible that your child has learnt to get things doen his way by shouting ,misbehaving or hitting you among others. So the simple principle of modifying this behaviour is that by not giving him what he is trying to get by doing that particular behaviour so it means if you could give him a signal that if we don't have to give something to you howmuch ever you misbehave we not be giving u.when you start practicing it initially this behaviour may increase more but if you remain firm and you don't give him into his demands the child will get signal that I cannot get everything thing through misbehave if they don't have to give me they will not give me at any cost .But this practice will also test you r patience if you remain firm you improve the behaviour of you r child .I hope I answer u.also U can contact privately.

The ability to hear is essential for proper speech and language development. Hearing problems may be suspected in children who are not responding to sounds or who are not developing their language skills appropriately. The following are some age-related guidelines that may help to decide if your child is experiencing hearing problems.

It is important to remember that not every child is the same. Children reach milestones at different ages. Talk your child's healthcare provider if you are suspicious that your child is not developing speech and language skills correctly.

Stammering has very many reasons behind. It falls under neuro-linguistic problems. Many a times its behavioural, due to anxiety or fear. Try breathing techniques, meet a psychiartirst who might treat you with medicines or will advise to meet a speech therapist. The basic cause need to be find out as for you its from very young age. You need a detailed evaluation. Take care.

Aphasia - Factors That Put You At Risk!

Aphasia - Factors That Put You At Risk!

Aphasia is a communication disability that can result from damage or injury to those parts of the brain that process language. It can happen due to stroke, brain tumors, accidents, or brain infection. A brain injury which damages parts of the brain that deal with language can also bring on Aphasia. Aphasia can also be caused by dementia such as Alzheimer’s disease. Aphasia is sometimes also a symptom of epilepsy or other neurological disorders.

It’s more common in older adults, especially after a stroke. What happens in Aphasia is that the affected person is unable to understand or use words. He or she may also:

  1. Have difficulty speaking and finding the "right" words to express themselves verbally
  2. Have problems understanding conversation
  3. Have problems reading and comprehending written words
  4. Have problems writing words
  5. Is unable to calculate or use numbers
  6. Has a tendency to use gibberish words as a part of speech

There are various types of Aphasia, differing in certain important ways from each other.
Aphasia can also be mild or severe. With mild Aphasia, the patient is able to converse, though he may not be able to find the right word or may not understand complex conversations.
However, in severe Aphasia, a person may lose his ability to communicate completely which means he can’t speak or understand any conversation and may also not be able to read or write.

Three things that aid Aphasia recovery are

  1. Speech Therapy
  2. Family Support
  3. Persistence

Treatment for Aphasia depends on factors like:

  1. Age
  2. Cause of brain injury which causes Aphasia
  3. Type of Aphasia
  4. Position and size of the brain lesion causing Aphasia
  5. If the Aphasia is due to a brain tumor, surgery to remove the tumor affecting the language centre can treat Aphasia.
  6. For a person who’s got Aphasia due to a stroke, sessions with a speech-language specialist are very effective. The therapist teaches the patient ways to communicate using stuff that doesn’t involve speech.

He uses the following to help the patient communicate without words:

  1. Props
  2. Drawings and pictures
  3. Teaching patient to speak slowly and be calm when talking.

Treatment techniques
The speech therapist uses these two main techniques to tackle Aphasia:

  1. Substitute skill model: This uses a prop like a writing board to help with spoken language.
  2. Direct treatment model: This approach uses specific exercises to help patients
  3. Copy and recall therapy (CART): This approach uses repetition and recall of certain words during speech therapy.
  4. Visual communication therapy (VIC): This involves the use of index cards to represent various components of speech.

In addition, Aphasia patients are also trained in the use of hand gestures to aid in communication as a part of ‘Visual Action Therapy (VAT)’.

I am a stutterer and also feel a low confidence ,main cause of this stuttering is low level of confidence and anxiety, I am a medical student ,so how can I get rid of 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.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

What Causes Vocal Cord Lesions?

ENT Specialist, Delhi
What Causes Vocal Cord Lesions?

When the vocal cords suffer from the accumulation of non-cancerous and abnormal growth, these are known as vocal cord lesions. These lesions usually cause a variety of voice and speech related problems. These are also known as singer’s nodules and nodes, which may be caused by pressure, stress and stretching of the vocal cords. Women between the age of 20 to 50 are more prone to this condition. Here is everything you need to know about the types, causes and treatment of these lesions.

Types: There are three kinds of vocal cord lesions, that is nodules, polyps and cysts. A vocal cord polyps may be caused on one side of the vocal cords and may also lead to many disturbances in one’s voice. Another type of vocal cord lesions includes a mass of tissue that may manifest in the sac or membranes around the vocal cord. This cyst can be on the surface of the vocal cord or in the ligaments of the vocal cord. This may require surgical removal as well as voice therapy thereafter. Nodules are the third type of lesion that may form in the vocal folds. These are basically calluses that may disappear once the pressure and overuse of the vocal cords diminish.

Causes: These lesions are usually benign or non-cancerous growths that may be caused due to a variety of reasons. Screaming and overuse of vocal cords are few of the most common reasons for the eruption of such lesions. The heavy use of one’s voice can cause quite a bit of trauma to the vocal cords and may lead to problems including lesions and disturbances in one’s voice. Conditions like reflux and allergic reactions may also cause vocal cord lesions as a side effect.

Symptoms: From hoarseness to pain, there are a number of symptoms caused by this condition. A low pitch and difficulty while speaking are also some of the common symptoms of this condition. Patients suffering from the growth of such lesions will also find themselves making an effort in order to speak normally and to be heard. Constant throat clearing may be required as well.

Treatment: Besides giving your voice a rest and gargling warm saline water with salt, one can also have the condition checked by the doctor so as to ascertain whether or not it is a serious lesion that may require surgical removal and voice therapy. The doctor will usually prescribe medicines in order to deal with any underlying conditions that may have caused the lesions, including allergic reactions, reflux, sinusitis and other such ailments. One will also have to stop smoking so that there is less chemical pressure on the vocal cord. Finally, one will have to go through voice therapy for more serious lesions.

Hi, I am 17 years old.From last October I have an immature voice even after hitting all other stages of puberty. I did a little research and understood that my condition might be called Puberphonia.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Please do not panic or do not worry. You are on the verge of voice change due to your adolescent hormonal changes. the voice continues to change from the age of 14 to the age of 20 or 21. This depends on many things. Therefore, your actual adult voice will be seen only around the age of 21. Please wait and watch. Take care.

Homeopathic Remedies For Stammering!

Homeopath, Thane
Homeopathic Remedies For Stammering!

Stammering or stuttering is a type of speech impairment where sounds or syllables are repeated involuntarily or there are unintended gaps in between words when the person is unable to make the desired sound.

People develop stutters due to genetic flaws, motor functioning defects, coordination problems or due to psychological stressors. The condition can result in anxiety, depression and withdrawal from verbal communication.

How does homeopathy help?

A stutter can be practiced away or corrected by speech therapy but there is no specific medicine that can be used to cure stammering. Homeopathic medicines can provide relief from the symptoms by fixing flawed nervous functions, improve motor coordination and modify the vocal apparatus. Different homeopathic treatments can be used depending on the nature of the condition.

The following is a list of homeopathic remedies and lifestyle changes that can be used to address the problem:

  1. Foods rich in vitamin B6 like nuts, fish, bananas and chicken should be consumed regularly by children who have a stutter to help with motor functions.
  2. Adults should avoid caffeine, tobacco and other recreational drugs as they cause hyper-stimulation of the nervous system.
  3. Stramonium (jimsonweed) can be used when the stammering is violent and the person distorts the facial muscles heavily in order to be able to speak.
  4. Lychopodium (clubmoss) can be useful for stammering as well as depression, memory weakness and sleep problems. This is especially helpful if the patient struggles with the last few words of a sentence.
  5. Spigelia is beneficial for a mild stutter at the beginning of a sentence, often followed by undisturbed speech.
  6. Causticum is prescribed when emotional excitability causes stammering, twitching of the facial muscles or problems in the vocal chords.
  7. Staphysagria can aid in reducing social anxiety which often causes stammering i.e. the stammer only happens while interacting with strangers or authority figures.
  8. Nux vomica (strychnine) is the medicine to use when stammering is a result of extreme stress or over work.
  9. Fright or shock often causes speechlessness or stammering. Aconite can provide immediate relief in such cases.
  10. Lachesis is an effective homeopathic medicine when the patient stutters over specific letters or syllables.
  11. Gelsemium is used to treat stuttering after severe viral infections when the patient complains of a heavy tongue and lack of general coordination.
