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.

What we have to do in CBT for psellismophobic person? Give me some stepwise idea about this.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
For those who are prone to stuttering might feel embarrassment, some kind of distress as well as fear in most cases. Psellismophobia is full blown condition / phobia. Cbt is one of the best form of treatment therapy for the same. We believe that our brain can be re-wired / reprogrammed just like the our pc could be programmable. In cbt the basic principle is to looking into the thought processes that lead to negative belief and behavior pattern. We believe that these unhealthy thought processes are continue the chain reaction of thinking, acting and believing leading the behavior to continue. For example" what will happen if I stutter? I always stutter when there are people around. The cbt aims at changing these thought processes and replace them with more positive thought processes, which is called cognitive restructuring. In other words it is all about changing the way you think about something so that your perception will also change and that will help reduce the problem. The first step in cbt is to notice your recurrent thoughts which are negative. These are the thoughts that works as a trigger. And write down these thoughts on a piece of paper. You may divide the page in 3 vertical columns and write down negative thoughts in first column. Second state is rational thinking - here you refute the negative statement with rational thinking, which we all could do when not currently in a stressful situation. For example, if a negative thought is" what will happen if I slutter? rational thought could be as simple as" these people are friends" or" in a conversation what is important is my participation. And in the third column write down positive affirmation - these are positive thoughts and positive statements that you consciously repeat. For ex" I am a confident and effective speaker. This will help you improve your confidence. The bottom line behind this is that you repeat this affirmative statement often enough that they gradually become habitual thoughts. When you are naturally thinking these positive thoughts that itself will improve your performance. Along with cbt you can also use regular meditation session to help you manage your stress better and to induce calmness which helps in the process. Visualization is also very effective way to change behavior. It works as begin with the end in my. Daily you see yourself speaking confidently and maintaining your calm, confident state of being while in conversation. You may also include how you are successfully working with your fear or embarrassment by changing your thought and body posture. This will also help change your behavior. Hope this helps.

Common cause of an itchy throat then is dehydration which causes the throat to become dry and hoarse as the body can no longer produce mucus. The obvious solution to this dehydration is to drink water. Similarly other behaviours can strain your throat – such as shouting loudly, singing loudly (and using incorrect technique – and snoring. Some medicines (antidepressants among others) and smoking which coats the throat in tar .

I am 21 yeas old. I am very poor in communication due to the feeling of insecurity and feeling that I don't have proper background in communication. This feeling was increasing day by day as I want to reduce it. Kindly provide a solution for this.

It 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.

The solution I am giving has a connotation of hinduism. Just ignore that and follow the rest of the program. After a course of 9-10 days your voice will improve. If it recurs repeat it. You may need maximum of three repeats to get permanent riddance. Keep a few months gap between two repeats.

It all depends on the vocal cords anatomical position and I will suggest you to rehearse your music as per your normal voice and do normal gargling and avoid any unnecessary food items and don't strain your self much and it can also be possible that after slow rehearsal you can get the pitch you want but it would take extra time.
