Stammering or Stuttering
Stammering or Stuttering is a speech disorder. It’s characterized by repeated words or sounds, halting speech production and uneven rate of speech. According to National School of Deafness and Other Communication Disorder ( NIDCD ) stammering affects 5 % of children aged 2 to 5. Less than 1% children will continue to stutter as adults.
As the child’s development progresses, the stammering will stop. If a child starts stuttering after the ages of 8 to 10, than the chances are the child will most likely continue stutter into adulthood.
Types of Stuttering or Stammering
There are three types of stuttering, Developmental, neurogenic and psychogenic.
Developmental: Children under 5 years old develops their speech abilities and mostly resolves without treatment.
Neurogenic: it is caused by signal abnormalities between the brain and nerves/muscles
Psychogenic: Originates in the part of the brain that governs thinking and reasoning.
Causes of Stammering or Stuttering
There are different causes of stuttering. Few are:
• Family history of stuttering
• Development during childhood
Brain injuries or a stroke can cause neurogenic stuttering. Serious emotional trauma or suppress any strong emotion can cause psychogenic stuttering. If both the parents stuttered then children may also stuttered. Sometime stuttering may run in people due to an inherited abnormality in the part of the brain that governs language.
Only a person with stammering can feel the helplessness of not being able to conquer his/her disability. In spite of knowing his own capability of perfect speaking the individual feels helpless. If the stammering is caused by a childhood emotional trauma, in that situation the person wanted to speak but could not, that suppressed memory causes the stammer in his future time.
