According to the survey, the prevalence of stuttering in the population is 0.5%. Many stutterers are afraid to speak, fear socializing, become inferior and even depressed. They need to work hard through long-term unremitting efforts to find confidence in speaking.
Men stutter 3 times more than women
The reasons for stuttering are still inconclusive, and most of them are considered to be developmental disorders in the language region of the brain. Stuttering is mainly based on psychological factors, and is more common in people who are ashamed of introversion. When they speak, they are nervous, and the muscles that are vocalized cause vocal interruptions and expression disorders. For example, when children are unstable from a small life, feel stressed and nervous, or are stimulated, they will stutter. For example, as we all know well, King George VI of England was born in the royal family. Since childhood, he has to obey a lot of rules and regulations. If he does not do well in words and deeds, he will be nervous.
Men’s language centers are not as developed as women, so they are more likely to stutter. The incidence of men and women is about 4 to 1. When these children grow up, it is reasonable to say that they are no longer stimulated by the stress of childhood, but when they have formed habits, they will be hard to change.
Stuttering may also be the result of imitating learning. For example, both father and son have stuttering. In addition to genetic factors, it is also likely that the son imitated his father’s way of speaking.
Language training to relax the muscles of the mouth
Psychological tension makes the pronunciation muscles unable to relax and lead to stuttering. It is very effective to conduct self-language training, such as diverting attention. Like the language therapist Rogge Jean George VI listens to the music, or sings the words and melody, the sentence It will not stutter. So after long-term language training, stuttering patients can make it impossible for others to hear.
When the stuttering patient speaks, the muscle tension is easy to talk, or a burst of words suddenly appears, so you can take a deep breath before speaking to relax the respiratory muscles, gently say the first word, fully slow down the speech rate. It is helpful to speak out rhythmically and help to reduce the repetition of stuttering. It doesn’t matter if you talk slowly, because others will think that you are thinking. Exposure therapy can also be applied, and speaking loudly to others in a crowded situation can make the conditioned reflexes overcome the fear of speaking.
Self-training is not easy to persevere, and the effect lacks feedback. It is best to have a special stuttering training class or club. Everyone is exposed to the defects of export and eating, and the mentality will be relaxed.
Don’t take stutter too seriously
George VI’s stuttering is related to the style of being asked to act in the royal family. He always keeps politeness, causing every sentence to be repeated and thinking about fear of mistakes, leading to muscle disharmony, if he realizes that people are not It may not be a mistake, so that 60% to 70% of the requirements are good, and stuttering is naturally relieved.
Stuttering patients also feel that their defects are very serious, afraid to leave a bad impression on others, people will look down on themselves, gradually develop into social anxiety, affecting social functions such as job hunting and social interaction. Psychotherapy can make stuttering patients accept the shortcomings of their own stuttering, and get out of the inferiority and disgusting state of mind. Specifically, let the patients lower their requirements for themselves, do not pursue to speak without mistakes, and understand that in fact, others’ evaluation of themselves is not necessarily bad.
Even if stuttering cannot be completely cured, if the patient does not take the stutter too seriously, it will not affect his career. The stuttering person “being fluent in words and acting in a row”, because of this shortcoming, will not arrogantly talk, so burying his head and doing things, and often there are great achievements, such as the British scientist Newton.
