There are some children who suffer from speech issues like Stammering that are attributed to either physical problems like muscles or lip movement troubles or also because of emotional issues. These children tend to get stuck at certain letters when saying words or sentences. They would also be more shy, cautious of speaking and tend to be introverts.
HOW IS STAMMERING DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis is made by observations of the adult or child while speaking in a number of different types of situations.
HOW IS STAMMERING TREATED?
Fluency shaping therapy, also known as ""speak more fluently"", ""prolonged speech"", or ""connected speech"", trains people who stammer to speak less dis fluently by controlling their breathing, phonation, and articulation (lips, jaw, and tongue). It is based on operant conditioning techniques. With existing behavioral, prosthetic, and pharmaceutical treatments providing limited relief from the overt symptoms of stuttering, support groups and the self-help movement continue to gain popularity and support by professionals and people who stammer.
