Since childhood I speak very fast and some times I feel difficult in speaking few words. How to reduce it.

Master of Speech Language Pathology
Speech Therapist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, speaking fast is a common phenomenon. However, if it makes your speech unclear, its always a problem. In order to be clear, you need to slow your speed of speech. Practice reading news paper with slow speed. Make it your habit. Explain your problem to your friends who understand you and practice slow speaking with them as much as possible till you get used to it. Always remember, your speech is not clear because you speak fast. Thank you.

Will stammering fade away with age? My age is 19? What a stammer does usually to cure himself?

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.

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. Wishing you good health.

I am 29 year old. I feel scared for no reason. Specially in winters. I can't speak .I start to feel uncomfortable to talk even with my closer ones. My mind stops working. My heartbeats become uncontrollable. It's happening since my childhood. I get fainted. Feel like exhausted. My confidence level gets at the lowest level. My throat dries and I can't speak anything.

Hello lybrate-user What you are mentioning seems to be related to the onset of winters. It is due to reduced sunlight that you maybe feeling the way you do, what you could do first is get exposure of sun, exercise and increased outdoor activity are believed to be very beneficial and also consult a psychologist for further therapy. Feel free to contact me for further query.

The Voice of my father is coming very low, he doesn't have cold or cough. He was so speaking fine a few weeks ago. It's just in last one week that his voice was muffled and today it's almost suppressed.

MD PHYSICIAN

Laryngitis is the most common cause of hoarseness and voice loss that starts suddenly. Most cases of laryngitis are caused by a viral infection that leads to swelling of the vocal cords. Other includes voice overuse, smoking, infection, GERD etc. Where inflammation of vocal cord occur which leads to difficult vibration of vocal cord leading to loss of voice pitch. The best treatment for this condition is to stay well hydrated and to rest or reduce voice use. Consult a ENT specialist to get evaluated and find out the underlying pathology.

What is stuttering?

Stuttering affects the fluency of speech. It begins during childhood and, in some cases, lasts throughout life. The disorder is characterized by disruptions in the production of speech sounds, also called" disfluencies" most people produce brief disfluencies from time to time. For instance, some words are repeated and others are preceded by" um" or" uh" disfluencies are not necessarily a problem; however, they can impede communication when a person produces too many of them.

In most cases, stuttering has an impact on at least some daily activities. The specific activities that a person finds challenging to perform vary across individuals. For some people, communication difficulties only happen during specific activities, for example, talking on the telephone or talking before large groups. For most others, however, communication difficulties occur across a number of activities at home, school, or work. Some people may limit their participation in certain activities. Such" participation restrictions" often occur because the person is concerned about how others might react to disfluent speech. Other people may try to hide their disfluent speech from others by rearranging the words in their sentence (circumlocution), pretending to forget what they wanted to say, or declining to speak. Other people may find that they are excluded from participating in certain activities because of stuttering. Clearly, the impact of stuttering on daily life can be affected by how the person and others react to the disorder.

What are signs and symptoms of stuttering?

Stuttered speech often includes repetitions of words or parts of words, as well as prolongations of speech sounds. These disfluencies occur more often in persons who stutter than they do in the general population. Some people who stutter appear very tense or" out of breath" when talking. Speech may become completely stopped or blocked. Blocked is when the mouth is positioned to say a sound, sometimes for several seconds, with little or no sound forthcoming. After some effort, the person may complete the word. Interjections such as" um" or" like" can occur, as well, particularly when they contain repeated (" u- um- um") or prolonged (" uuuum") speech sounds or when they are used intentionally to delay the initiation of a word the speaker expects to" get stuck on"

Some examples of stuttering include:

" w- w- w- where are you going" (part-word repetition: the person is having difficulty moving from the" w" in" where" to the remaining sounds in the word. On the fourth attempt, he successfully completes the word.)
" ssss ave me a seat" (sound prolongation: the person is having difficulty moving from the" s" in" save" to the remaining sounds in the word. He continues to say the" s" sound until he is able to complete the word.)
" i'll meet you - um um you know like - around six o'clock" (a series of interjections: the person expects to have difficulty smoothly joining the word" you" with the word" around" in response to the anticipated difficulty, he produces several interjections until he is able to say the word" around" smoothly.)
How is stuttering diagnosed?

Identifying stuttering in an individual's speech would seem like an easy task. Disfluencies often" stand out" and disrupt a person's communication. Listeners can usually detect when a person is stuttering. At the same time, however, stuttering can affect more than just a person's observable speech. Some characteristics of stuttered speech are not as easy for listeners to detect. As a result, diagnosing stuttering requires the skills of a certified speech-language pathologist (slp).

During an evaluation, an slp will note the number and types of speech disfluencies a person produces in various situations. The slp will also assess the ways in which the person reacts to and copes with disfluencies. The slp may also gather information about factors such as teasing that may make the problem worse. A variety of other assessments (e. G, speech rate, language skills) may be completed as well, depending upon the person's age and history. Information about the person is then analyzed to determine whether a fluency disorder exists. If so, the extent to which it affects the ability to perform and participate in daily activities is determined.

For young children, it is important to predict whether the stuttering is likely to continue. An evaluation consists of a series of tests, observations, and interviews designed to estimate the child's risk for continuing to stutter. Although there is some disagreement among slps about which risk factors are most important to consider, factors that are noted by many specialists include the following:

A family history of stuttering
Stuttering that has continued for 6 months or longer
Presence of other speech or language disorders
Strong fears or concerns about stuttering on the part of the child or the family
No single factor can be used to predict whether a child will continue to stutter. The combination of these factors can help slps determine whether treatment is indicated.

For older children and adults, the question of whether stuttering is likely to continue is somewhat less important, because the stuttering has continued at least long enough for it to become a problem in the person's daily life. For these individuals, an evaluation consists of tests, observations, and interviews that are designed to assess the overall severity of the disorder. In addition, the impact the disorder has on the person's ability to communicate and participate appropriately in daily activities is evaluated. Information from the evaluation is then used to develop a specific treatment program, one that is designed to:

Help the individual speak more fluently,
Communicate more effectively, and
Participate more fully in life activities.
What treatments are available for stuttering?

Most treatment programs for people who stutter are" behavioral" they are designed to teach the person specific skills or behaviors that lead to improved oral communication. For instance, many slps teach people who stutter to control and/or monitor the rate at which they speak. In addition, people may learn to start saying words in a slightly slower and less physically tense manner. They may also learn to control or monitor their breathing. When learning to control speech rate, people often begin by practicing smooth, fluent speech at rates that are much slower than typical speech, using short phrases and sentences. Over time, people learn to produce smooth speech at faster rates, in longer sentences, and in more challenging situations until speech sounds both fluent and natural" follow-up" or" maintenance" sessions are often necessary after completion of formal intervention to prevent relapse.

I am a 22 year old female, suffering from stammering problems since 10 years. Please suggest some treatment for me. It's urgent.

MBBS, MD - NEUROPSYCHIATRY
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
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.

I am 20 years old. I am very week. I look like 15. What should I do? I use to stammer also. Please help me.

lybrate-user there is no operation or medicine for Stammering. Unless it is diagnosed due to neurological cause. It is a habit associated with lack of self confidence and thus fear. So go to an experienced Speech Therapist.

You cannot change your voice from deep to high. In fact deep voices are much looked up to in society fro many reasons. You could cultivate your voice for this pitch and get into another genre of music. So, go for good voice training to groom your deep voice gift and make the most of an envious voice really.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user, your child language is very less, by this age child should have imaginative language. He is lacking behind. You need to consult qualified speech therapists and attend continuous speech therapy and depending on guide line of therapist you need to develop eye contact, attention and many more. Do not be late because critical age period for speech language development is 2 years.
