Hi, I want to ask that is there any pills or drugs treatment for stammering. My brother try many suggestion but he has no change in stammering. Please suggest some. Thanks.

Hi unfortunately stammering has no medicinal treatment. However if your brother takes proper speech therapy from a qualified speech therapist then his problem can surely be solved. Speech therapy will involve air flow management techniques, proper breathing patterns, language and fluency techniques, a combination ofvvthese can help any chronic stutterer also. Good luck! you can consult me in private with details of the onset and course of your brothers stammering so that I can guide you better.

Hii. My son is seven years old. He doesn't speak fluently. He stammers a bit. Do I need to consult to a doctor for removing his stammering or should I wait for him growing up, so that his stammering goes away with his age? Please advise.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your son is 7 now. Do not wait anymore. Stammering does not go away with age. Please consult a paediatritian. He will check your son physically and see if there is physical deformity which is causing this problem. Once he rules out physical ailment, you may consult a speech therapist. Also, please try to boost his confidence. Do not shame him for his mistakes or inabilities. Appreciate his sincere efforts in each field. Children may stammer under stress or when they feel that they are inadequate and are being judged by the elders.

How should I behave with my life partner? We quarrel regularly for no reason. Whenever she raises her voice I decrease mine. But when I raise my voice she never decreases her voice and in turn barks at me like hell that world gonna end today and we are gng to leave each other. Is there any suggestion to this problem?

Surely there is solution. Presently you both are" talking" but you both are not" listening" what the other person has to say. Typically with newly married couples, what happens is, both have certain expectations from their spouse, but they do not voice these expectations and expect their spouse to" understand" it on their own. At the same time, what meaning each person is making from the other's actions/remarks also differs - e. G. If the wife says" why are you late again today? the husband thinks she is suspicious or nagging. But what she actually wants to convey is" I want you to come back on time, so that I can spend more time with you" and if the wife is talking to her husband and if the husband is busy watching tv or reading news paper, the wife assumes that she is not important for him, tv/paper is more important, which may not be so. So please remember that most of the relationship issues are because of lack of communication and listening skills. You both please try to learn some communications and listening skills. Learn to express your needs and understand other's needs. It will help you a lot. In the absence of good communication and listening skills, you both will not be able to have any other good relationship. Even if you both decide to leave each other now, you will have similar problems later on, with another person. So the best way is, to understand and accept that you both have come from different homes/backgrounds so you will have clashes because you will have different opinions, perceptions, values expectations etc. If required talk to a counsellor. You both need to work together to make this relationship work. All the best.

When I speak in front of audience I stammer, but when I personally converse with people I speak fluently. Is it due to fear of audience that exists inside me? I even read the newspaper loudly everyday. Will that help me solve my problem?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Reading the newspaper loudly does help with the stammering but not with regard public speaking and its fears. This is the number one fear of all people. Even the most successful speakers admit to this problem. In fact the first 90 seconds are most frightening. The heart beat races to doubles the normal: 144 times a minute. So you are advised to prepare a good opening sentence to launch you off to a good start. The fear is generally centered around rejection: am I good enough? Will people like me? Will people know more than me? Etc. A host of self-conscious comparisons that only make you feel inferior. When the whole world is in the same boat, take heart and learn some basic techniques to overcome this stage fright. Join a Toastmasters club in your town and develop your public speaking skills and experience. Also remember some little rules: look for some pleasant face in the audience, look over the audience, prepare yourself well, talk simply, understand that you can only talk on what you know not on some grand made-up design of yours, there are always others who are better than you, pray before you speak, and so on. Focus on the three areas of public speaking according to their importance: Presentation and appearance (20%), audience (30%), and content (50%). You probably have fear from childhood that has not been resolved and is tending to find an outlet in your mouth to make it stammer. You could meet with a counselor to settle this matter. There are a lot more points but space constraints do not permit me to be more elaborate.

Yes it can be one of the reasons, but not the final reason. Ask her to practice reading anything loudly in a room, practice will solve the problem, and of course you can visit the dentist to find out other reasons.

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.

Sufficient speech stimulus is needed for speech lang development of the child. Talk, chat with her as much as possible. N do give time for her. Coz child imitates the speech of her familiar person quikly rather thn any other" s. So keep that in mind, this is the crucial age of speech lang development.

I often stammer during speaking. What are the reasons behind it and what arr the treatments.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Hi there, stammering is a complex condition which affects individuals in different ways. Therefore it isn't possible to make a general recommendation about the best treatments - different approaches help different people. Speech and language therapy can be available free under the nhs or you can see a therapist privately or take part in a low cost intensive course run by qualified therapists. Where do I start? we do suggest that you try to see a qualified speech and language therapist, at least in the first instance. A therapist who has experience of working with people who stammer will be able to offer you a range of different techniques. From these you can choose the techniques that you find most helpful (this might change over time) and the therapist will support you in the choice that you make. By contrast, people who offer alternative approaches tend to have just one technique which they offer to everyone, and this may not be right for you. Tried? try again. Even if you had therapy when you were younger, and felt that you weren't helped, it is still worth trying again, because therapy may have changed, and you may have changed. Remember - it is worth persevering. It can take time to find the approach that is right for you, but many adults make huge improvements to their speech. You can also get help to feel better about your speech just as it is - for some people, self-acceptance can be just as important as fluent speech. Usually, the two approaches go hand in hand. With any form of therapy, it's no doubt best, having made the decision to try it, to give it your best shot, rather than do it half-heartedly. If, in the end, it doesn't work for you, you can at least be assured that it wasn't for want of trying. All it means is that, at this point of time in your life, it is not the right approach for you. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise! a cure for stammering? we don't provide information about approaches which claim to cure stammering. This isn't because we're defeatist about stammering, but because we believe that the approaches which are most helpful in the long-term require on-going practice of technique to be become effective. For more thoughts on this, and for some general recommendations about questions to ask before paying for private therapy, see is there a cure for stammering? where can I find a qualified speech and language therapist? there are three ways in which you can see a qualified speech and language therapist: under the nhs, by taking part in a course at city lit in london, an adult education centre with a specialist speech and language therapy department, or privately. Finding a qualified speech and language therapist. Other courses and approaches beyond working with a qualified speech and language therapist, there is a wide range of alternative therapies and courses available for adults who stammer. Sometimes it takes determination to find something that is right for you - and it can be difficult to distinguish genuine from spurious help. Alternative approaches clearly help some people, but because stammering is such an individual condition, they are not right for everyone. We suggest you read our article is there a cure for stammering? especially before committing yourself to spending a large amount of money. Two courses run by non-speech therapists and based on'costal breathing' are the mcguire programme and the starfish project. The stammering self-empowerment programme, set by paul brocklehurst phd, runs intensive courses and evening courses, mostly in macclesfield and manchester. The kings speakers in london is a public speaking group particularly for people who stammer, aimed at improving one's communication and leadership skills. Other public speaking groups round the country also welcome people who stammer. Other occasional workshops are shown on our events page. Courses aimed particularly at the workplace include those offered by talkcoach, and some of the courses offered by city lit in london. Electronic fluency devices electronic devices are available on the market which are intended to help people who stammer produce more fluent speech. They mostly use'altered auditory feedback' playing back speech into one's ear with a delay and often at a different pitch. More on electronic fluency devices. Self-help and confidence building the sharing and discussing of a problem with others who stammer can often prove helpful. There may be a self-help group in your area, or there are opportunities for support and discussion over the internet or by telephone. You can come to events such as bsa conferences and open days. There is also a lot of reading matter on stammering available. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day.
