VOCAL DEFECTS: CONTROLLING, MANAGING AND ELIMINATING STUTTERING/STUMMERING
STUTTERING/STATTERING OR STAMMERING is a communication disorder that affects the organs of speech in a way that causes unsmooth articulation of words. Words can be repeated, stopped, swallowed, broken or skipped.Because of the articulatiion problems, stutterers often develop social and
professional 'fears' and feel that their condition is making them 'filures' in a way. They shun from social circles and end up just wanting to keep quite; they stop talking and feel as though their careers suffer because of their vocal defects.
Kids can begin stattering for different reasons. Some children can just suddenly switch from speaking normally to stuttering and parents are usually terrified. It is sometimes a temporary situation and most kids would outgrow it. Sometimes stattering can come as a result of fear. Children with language developmental challenges are more likely to stutter and the condition affects more males than females.
A STUTTERER'S JOURNEY TO FLUENCY!
Here's a Highly Effective & Cutting Edge Stuttering Program!
Stuttering: vocal defects in public speaking
For a person who stammers (a stammerer), public speaking and presenting poses a lot of fears and doubts. The stutterer worries about his ability to deliver an eloquent speech, and this creates stress. The stress and pressure to say things well in turn worsen the condition. It becomes a vicious circle. You get stressed about delivering the speech well, the stress causes you not to relax, you can't speak well, the stattering becomes worse, you get even more stressed and start feeling like a failure.
If you consider the fact that sound allows us to speak, and then consider how breathing affects sound, you would soo realise how important breathing is in public speaking, and even more so for a stummerer delivering a speech. relaxation, confidence, pase, breathing and acceptance would take you a long way.
Rehearse and be prepared
Learn to breathe
Pause in between sentences and within sentences
Do not talk too fast
Stammerers often get too frustrated if and when they can't get the words out. they become angry and eager to get the words out as quickly as they can. This usually makes matters worse. The solution is to stop and take deep breaths. Even smile and take a sip of water. But don't try and catch up too fast. You'll swallow your words and people would hardly hear what you say. Accept that your speech won't flow as smoothly as that of a non-statterer; and understand that people would understand. Do not put yourself under unnnecessary pressure. Even though you have this condition, you still have a lot to share with people and being a statterer should never deter you from speaking out and making your voice heard.
