My 3 years old daughter doesn't speak much. She says words to explain what she wants but she doesn't talk fluently. She is good with her motor skill, body balance. She even tries to trick me. I'm a single parent. My ex husband was violent with me in front of my daughter till she was around 2 years old. Is it possible that violence that my daughter has witnessed has effected her growth or language skill in someway. Also I work long hours each day, I hardly give my daughter 3-4 hrs a day. She is mostly with her maid. Should I seek some psychological treatment for my daughter?

Yes, the divorce and all the violence she has witnessed will have a bearing on this child. Being a girl child, she will also miss her father quite a bit now, and more later. It does not help that you don?t have much time to give her too. These years are most important to her and any way you can spend more time with her will diminish the total impact to a reasonable level, at least. Believe me, this is an investment with good dividends: otherwise you are looking at paying a great price for her and yourself, later. At this age she must talk incessantly, so this break up is certainly impacting her. She is angry and probably very sad. Divorce is always bad for the adults and worse for the kids. You have a responsibility to help her tide over the effects of this huge void in her life. You cannot obviously be father and mother to her, so a male figure around her will somewhat compensate this loss. You could go to a child psychologist both for assessment and some therapy. Don?t try to delay helping her on any front because it is easier to set things right as a preventive measure than as a curative one. She is already in a disturbed state but further negligence will lead to serious situations that at a later time even curative efforts may only nudge the issues and make it very difficult to do real justice.

My mother had SDH - Craniotomy operation 1.5 month ago. Now she cant speak still she try to speak but cant speak clear to understand sometime she speaks 1-2 word clearly. What should do?

Physiotherapist, Cuttack
You could consult a speech therapist or make her read things like we use to do when we were kids. One alphabet at a time, then very small words, then small words and progress gradually. Don't stop talking to her as this will motivate her to speak. Thank you.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, the best option is stammer therapy. Take care.

Steps for Keeping Your Voice Healthy Drink plenty of water. Moisture is good for your voice. ... Try not to scream or yell. ... Warm up your voice before heavy use. ... Don't smoke. ... Use good breath support. ... Use a microphone. ... Listen to your voice. Begin with the solfege symbol "do" while singing the pitch. Hold out this note to the extent of your comfort. Then, sing and signal the note "re" while holding it out. Then, go back down and sing the note "do."

Causes of Stuttering

Speech Therapist, Noida

Many young kids go through a stage between the ages of 2 and 5 when they stutter, repeating certain syllables, words or phrases, prolonging them, or stopping, making no sound for certain sounds and syllables. Stuttering is a form of dysfluency — an interruption in the flow of speech.

In many cases, stuttering goes away on its own by age 5; in others, it lasts longer.

There's no cure for stuttering, but effective treatments are available and you can help your child overcome it.

Experts think that a variety of factors contribute to stuttering, including:

  • Genetics about 60% of those who stutter have a close family member who stutters.
  • Other speech and language problems or developmental delays.
  • Differences in the brain's processing of language: people who stutter process language in different areas of the brain. And there's a problem with the way the brain's messages interact with the muscles and body parts needed for speaking.
  • High/increased activity level.
  • Rapid rate of speech.

My brother is 15 years old. He is not able to speak sentences properly he has a iq of 70 but not suffering from autism or other mental disorder. Was weak in studies, but able to do calculations upto 2-3rd std. What should we do. Is he able to live normal life like marriage etc.

Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Since he comes under the definition of mild mental retardation (now called general intellectual disability), he will always have limitations in his daily living. Still an I q of 70 means that he can manage most of the routine things with little assistance. You and your parents should focus on training him for self care, travel, communication and perhaps a simple vocation that he can turn into an occupation. Marriage, like any other legal contract, requires both parties (bride and groom) to fully understand the nature of the contract, at the time of the alliance. The iq by itself doesn't matter. Every person with an iq of 70 will have different levels of understanding. That is the legal angle. So he can get married. However, focus on making him as independent as possible.

I am 23 years old I have stammering problem for 23 years. What is the solution to cure that.

MSc, PGDGC, M.Phil - Psychology
Psychologist, Chennai
Hi, check whether the stammering arises from the beginning of your birth or it is situational basis. If it is situational basis means you are anxiety it seems, be in that anxiety situation for longer time, this will reduce your anxiety. If it is from birth, ignore this condition, accept your problem of difficulty.

I have lisping (tutlana) problem that is 't' comes out when I want to speak 'k' for example tow comes out when I want to speak cow.

General Physician, Nashik
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.
