Remember when you used to be in school and dreaded the thought of your teacher calling on you? It was as if your mind and vocal cords stopped connecting together and all you could do was stammer through questions asked.
What if the stammering never stopped and you didn’t use your vocal cords anymore?
Suffering from stuttering or childhood-onset fluency disorder affects children and adults. The speech disorder has to deal with the normal fluency and flow of speech. People who live with a stutter know what they want to say, but have difficulty sometimes saying it.
Conducting speech therapy at home is possible and often times recommended. If you are needing a speech therapist, they will come to your home so that you or your loved ones feel more comfortable.
During their sessions, therapist like to keep background noise and distractions low so that you can focus on what you are trying to say. Taking your time to speak and having therapy sessions is okay.
Don’t feel self-conscious about how you speak or read, people have all the time in the world, so giving them a little bit more of yours won’t hurt.
