I developed a speech disorder after being mute for 7 years. Please help.

I'm not sure if this is the right subreddit to post this but I was hoping someone can help give me some advice on how I can learn to speak properly again.

I used to talk normally when I was 16 but I dropped out of school due to severe social anxiety and I've been pretty much a hikikomori since then. I very rarely ever leave my house and the only times I ever have social interaction with people is workers from grocery stores, I only ever reply with simple phrases like "yes/no", "thank you" etc.

I am now 23 and have difficulties pronouncing letters and words, I stutter alot and I even notice that I spit quite often when talking. I recently recorded myself speaking and it's almost like I've completely forgotten how to speak and it's very embarrassing. I have recording of myself when I was a teenager and I sounded way more mature/normal sounding back then than I am now.

Is there anyone here who could relate and are there any methods to help me talk normally again without getting speech therapy? I was thinking of maybe talking to myself out loud when browsing the web and reading comments on reddit just so I can practice and learn how to speak again.

Clan Friendly To Speech Disorders?

Already posted on two other subreddits but was directed here, so I'll give it a go here as well.

My girlfriend and I really want to do raids together, but we both need to be taught how to do them. Normally, guided raids would be a good option, but it's mic required and she has a stutter which, due to people being raging assholes about it, makes her anxious to do something like that. Does anyone know of a clan that is willing to raid/play in general with someone who won't be using a mic? Thanks.

Here we go again @MensHealthMag Why should you stop promoting strangulation? It causes serious harm, including "cardiac arrest, stroke, miscarriage, incontinence, speech disorders, seizures, paralysis, and other forms of long-term brain injury."

It’s possible to experience strangulation and show 0 symptoms but die weeks later due to brain damage. You can die from as little as 5-10 seconds of pressure on the carotid artery. Repeated strangulation can lead to airway collapse and death. There is no safe way to be choked. Even momentary choking can burst blood vessels in the eyes and face, cause headaches and sore throats, and make swallowing afterwards difficult. THERE IS NO WAY TO BE CHOKED SAFELY. Stop normalising abuse under the guise of 'being kinky'.

Is it possible to have trouble with normal production of pitch/tone due to a speech disorder? How can speech disorders relate to singing?

Context

For quick context, I was diagnosed with a speech disorder when I was young, in which I could think fine and know what I wanted to say, but I was unintelligible to listeners (my parents could hardly even understand me, the only person who could was my slightly older sister I shared a room with). I got years of speech therapy in elementary school, and now am off in the other direction, being a bit overly articulate and well spoken.

However, I have never had a very expressive voice. I may say expressive things, but generally I have an ever-enduring, calm tone (which some people like). I hardly modulate my pitch at all (but I do not have amusia, I can hear pitch).

A few years ago, I discovered my #1 passion is singing. Even though I can hear pitch, the performance of pitching came so unnaturally to me. For over two years, I was genuinely way off pitch, even if I could hear it myself. Finally, I am getting better, but every time I begin singing it requires a period of "getting into the zone." Then when my voice clicks into gear, it's the most natural thing in the world, and my years of training tone and technique are allowed to shine when the pitch is accurate. But the key feeling is that feeling of unnaturalness of pitch if I try to "just sing," like so many other people can.

Main Question

Do any of you know of any research papers I could read on these topics? Most resources I find on apraxia of speech focus on articulation, but I am wondering if maybe there was a similar issue of pitch which may have been affected and gone unresolved for me. I certainly face some unique challenges with singing compared to others, and the same pitching exercises that help others do not help me with this challenge. I think it is time for me to start researching if this could be linked to my natural disorder.

Thank you in advance for any information/help! :)

Speech disorders and learning languages

Hi everyone! This is just a general question but I’m hoping anyone could give me any advice. I’m currently learning a language and I’ve noticed that I’m struggling with pronunciation. Obviously most do when they just start, but I’ve been doing it for almost a year now and I’m still making the same mistakes.

I’ve been diagnosed with dyslexia and dyspraxia within the last few years, but I was in speech therapy between the ages of 4-9 (4-7 straight and then went back to it when I was 9), and I’ve started to wonder if it’s because I was in speech therapy for so long and things were kind of β€œdrilled” into me. I still think about how to pronounce certain sounds in English never mind another language lol. A lot of my issues stem around the sounds I struggled with (Rs, Ss, Shs, Ls and more), but I’m not sure if it’s that or dyslexia (I have issues processing sounds).

So, I was wondering if anyone knows if this is common in people who attended speech therapy in the past? And if there’s any good way to combat it?

Older Children with Residual Speech Sound Disorders - Discharge Woes

Hey speech fam!

Something has been bothering me. I am a high school based SLP and I am inheriting 5 or 6 kids with articulation disorders (residual /s/ and /r/ errors). I asked an old professor about prognosis for these kids. All she could tell me was that their prognosis is poor and she sent me an article from 1993 (...because they apparently have NEVER performed prognostic research on older children with SSDs?!). Judging by my professor's clinical opinion, this article I read and my personal experience attempting to improve SSDs in older children (I've probably treated 20 +/- in my past three years of working), I am sad to say that I think my time and resources are better spent with students who really need me - the kids with moderate to profound language difficulties.

BUT....there's a problem: how do you "graduate" someone from speech therapy if they will ALWAYS have scores which would qualify? I'm afraid that certain parents may attempt to seek legal action against me if I attempt to discharge their child with obvious speech problems; of course I would ask for their permission to discharge, but what after that?

Are we literally just supposed to keep those five or so /r/ and /s/ kids on our caseload until they graduate? How do you guys feel about older (12+) children with SSDs being on your caseload? What would you guys do? What would you do to avoid retaliation? What if parents resist graduation despite your input? Let me know what you think.

Thank you!

Speech disorder and rude employee

I have a speech disorder (I stutter on top of having an accent..lucky me) well I went Dunkin and used the app like usual and I was feeling anxious about speaking into the speaker and yet I didn’t stutter at all and before I could relax the lady said my name completely wrong back to me..before I could correct her she told me to come to the window. At the window it got worse. The woman said my name wrong again so I got nervous and stuttered my name and she rather rudely said β€œwhat? I can’t hear you” so I spoke louder and again she butchered my name and was about to give me the wrong order when I just told her what my order was (it was one drink) she seemed annoyed with me and said β€œwhat??” I was so upset and finally a coworker popped her head in the window and she could clearly hear me..so I wrote it off as perhaps the other lady had a hearing issue. So a few days later I return and this time my husband orders for us and I hear and I’m assuming the same woman who butchered my name say β€œit’s insert name not insert incorrect name and maybe I’m over sensitive to my disorder but I got the sense she was mocking me with her coworkers and got upset. I haven’t been back to that Dunkin since and it’s been so long that I don’t know if filing a complaint with management is worth it because I don’t know what her name was. I of course go to another Dunkin now and so far they haven’t misunderstood me. Has anyone experienced bad customer service with Dunkin? Is it worth it to complain to management?

what's the difference between poor speech recognition and auditory processing disorder?

I can't find anything that would suggest they're different but from what I understand I think APD only affects the person when there is background noise whereas poor speech recognition would affect the person at all times. I'm just wondering because I've thought i had apd for a few years, but now there are a few things that make me question if i really have it- I'll list some for reference:

● Up until i was 13 I had perfectly normal understanding of what people were saying in any environment. I could have conversations with people in restaurants, theatres, school, just anywhere. It's like my apd or whatever it is I have came out of no where. I remember at 13 i started being unable to understand people when they spoke into microphones and it just kept getting worse and worse from there.

● Its hard for me to understand people in any setting. I can be in a dead silent room looking directly at a person and I will not understand a thing they are saying. Sometimes I'll have someone repeat something to me 3 times and I STILL won't get it even though there is literally no other noise present. So, this leads me to believe it's not just my brain being unable to filter out background noise but rather a problem with me cognitively or something.

Mixed receptive expressive speech disorder

My son is 2 and has been in speech therapy since April for mixed receptive expressive speech disorder. It all started because he went from 15-20 words at 15 months to 4 at 18 months. He's had full assessments and has fine motor delays and is hyposensitve, but not believed to be on the spectrum at this time. He'll begin OT as soon as there's an opening.

After 14 sessions we've added one word and a few signs. I know everyone learns at a different place, but I guess I'm just wondering if this is an ok pace? He babbles and makes a lot of noise, just not words. He seems to respond better to signs than speech, so I've been learning as much as I can.

This is a new level of exhausting, and I know he's frustrated too. I'm doing everything speech has us doing and I verbalize everything I do and see, but right now this feels like an impossibly high mountain

Communication Sciences and Disorders? Or Linguistics with an emphasis on Speech-Language Sciences and Disorders?

Hey everyone!

Quick backstory: I’m currently a student at Chico state with a major in CMSD. I got accepted into Chico before I knew I wanted to become an SLP. Chico was not my first choice, and it was my last resort to get into a school after I got denied from UCSB. As a backup, if I didn’t like Chico I also applied to UC Santa Barbara...(again) A few days ago I found out I got accepted into UCSB and now I don’t know if I want to go. UCSB is my dream school and the first time I applied I didn’t get it. The down side to UCSB is that it doesn’t offer the exact degree everyone says to get to become a SLP. They call it Linguists with an emphasis on sciences and disorders. Anyone who is already an SLP whose gone though this I need your advice. What is the most common major for SLP? Should I just suck it up and stay at Chico or risk it and go to UCSB????

Can speech disorders caused by MS be treated?

This isn't an acute flare, rather a slow deterioration since last year. It's not just a word finding disorder, but also slurred speech and stumbling upon one's words. Sometimes I have the words in my head but somehow can't get them out. I talked to my neurologist but he insists that this "can't be caused by MS". But it didn't need much research to find out that many MS patients suffer from this very problem. I just couldn't really find out how to treat it. Since this is a symptom that is worsening with every month, I'd like to take countermeasures. Everytime I start talking so weirdly my anxiety is sky rocketing. I'm so scared how I will sound like in 10 years from now, heck, let alone in 2 years! Any advice?

Digital assistant or smart speaker for someone with speech disorder (they are mute)

No, this isn't the premise of a joke. If someone is mute or can't speak for various reasons, any options for sending commands/requests to the aforementioned device using a smartphone/tablet/laptop? I get you can make the argument to just use a mobile device to manually type, but this scenario comes to mind.

A mute person has something like a Nest Hub Max, perhaps using it for ASL video chats. But one morning they just wanna know the temperature for the day. Can they use a mobile device to query the location and temp and have it display on the Nest device?

I don't have more specific scenarios as I don't have experience with this and I'm asking because I'm curious how folks with speech disorders (mostly those that can't speak) best utilize digital assistants.

This isn't a question of browsing the Internet using the digital assistant. The example described is asking if it's possible to send/share a command from a mobile device to the digital assistant instead of verbally requesting it.

Have seen 2 neurologists and my GP but they said my symptoms are not typical with MS. Didn't had any active flares for years, but the slurred speech, not finding words and feeling dizzy 24/7 are beyond worrying. The dizziness expands to such an extent that I cannot focus even when lying down. Texts become blurred. Have seen an Ophthalmologist too, my eyes are ok. No allergies are known either.

I don't drink or smoke, don't do drugs, actually trying to live as healthy as possible.

I have a speech disorder that really fucks up my life

I am unsure of how I should begin this text. I have heard in the past that it really helps to talk to someone when you have negative thoughts. I don't really want (or can) speak to someone in real life, so Reddit is the next best thing. I really want to share my thoughts and tell a little about my life, but I don't know where to begin. English isn't my native tongue so please forgive any grammar mistakes. This is my first Reddit post, so I am really not used to all of this.

Do you know that period in your life when you are between 1 and 2 years old where you learn all the basic things like speaking and other elementary things about the world? Yeah, I was deaf during that period. My parents and the doctors didn't know how long I been deaf. I could have deaf for a half a year or since birth, but regardless it really fucked up the rest of my life. It caused a permanent speaking disorder. I now can't say long complicated words or nearly any words that have the word R in it (which is basically every fifth word). If I really concentrate on each word I am saying then I have the vocabulary to a 10 year old boy (I am currently 17). I often mix words with eachother or completly forget some words. I can imagen i sentence perfectly inside my head, but it comes out all wrong when i open my mouth. Because of this, I have had a really hard time communicating with other people. It is hard to make friends when they can barely understand you. Because of this, I spend nearly all my childhood alone. Like many others, I turned to video games and the fictional world to keep myself distracted from reality. I got my first real friend at the end of middle school.

I had multiple speech therapists throughout my life. I have been going through these sessions since kindergarten. I eventually stopped taking these sessions in 8 grade when I got tired of trying. I am unsure if I can use the word depression since apparently you need a therapist to classify you as one, but I have no other words that can describe how I feel. I would often share my mentality and my feelings with my parents, so I got my first psychologist when I was 10 years old. I stopped going after a few months since it is really hard to talk about your feelings when you can barely talk.

How do you distinguish between phonological and motor speech sound disorders?

Hi guys, I've got a kid on my placement who replaces every bilabial or velar stop with a t or a d. They also do a lot of stopping. They can say p and b too but it's pretty rare. I'm not allowed to do any assessment till the start of next week when my supervisor meets with me, so does anyone have any tips on how I can determine if it's a lack of phonological awareness, or something more motor based?

speech disorder and service

I have a 3rd grade child and I'm having a difficulty in getting him some service from his public school (NY). He can appear to speak and hear like an average kid (partially b/c he's quiet), but in fact has a lot of challenge in generating a proper sentence to express his thoughts. His sentence is usually short, or sounds confusing or awkward if it gets longer. Teachers, friends often times don't understand what he tries to say although we as parents can figure it out. He has very hard time acquiring vocabulary of his grade level. When he learns new words, he will forget most of them in a day. He makes frequent grammatical errors in tense and plurality. He also has a hard time grasping what other people are saying including his peers. When he jumps in the conversation, his comments are often times off the target.

Luckily his school grade is above average, partially thanks to reinforcement from tutors and parents. This on the other hand works against his needs by disqualifying him for additional help from school. We insisted having the school evaluate him for speech issue, but his past evaluation put him in average to top bracket in most of categories including fluency and vocabulary. We strongly doubt whether the evaluation was done properly. I can imagine the school doesn't want to allocate resources to help a child who appears only mildly impaired. But I'm very concerned he will have more and more difficulty in keeping up academically and socially as he advances in grades. I guess my option is persistently fighting for a service for him but at the same time I wonder going cross with school can really do any good for my child. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Maybe kids shouldn't be able to get an IEP just for speech or language disorders.

Let's take a tour.

First, we meet the kid with a lisp who makes great grades, has friends, but who is quiet in class on account of self-consciousness about the articulation disorder, and so he'll qualify because you can argue it impacts him in the classroom. For me, it's a bit like having very crooked teeth. Maybe that kid is also self-conscious and reluctant to open his mouth, but no one brings in an orthodontist for him.

Second, there's the referral you get whose parent insists it's "just speech", and isn't interested in the red flags you see for more complex issues. He gets help from you, but the underlying issue is left untreated.

Third, a lot of school SLPs end up doing language interventions with a very academic focus, even ones that are based directly in the curriculum. It helps, but that overlap has always made me feel a little uneasy. A little insecure in my identity as a medical professional, rather than an educator.

Fourth, should we really be case-managing IEPs? Grad schools vary in how much training they give about the process, but for most SLPs I've met, it isn't second nature. When we write an IEP, we often talk about academic issues, curriculum standards, and other areas of the child's life in which we just aren't experts.

Imagine if speech were an auxiliary service in schools, like PT or OT, where a kid couldn't get the service unless they had some other qualifying issue. Our caseloads would smaller. Our stress would be lower. We'd see more interesting cases more frequently, rather than dozens of generic language or artic disorders.

Just something I've been thinking about. What do you guys think?

A student with a speech disorder in my non-special needs class got laughed at.

There is this guy in my high school history class, and we were presenting on some the common slang, fashion and general social issues in the 1920s. Simple stuff.

So this guy, let’s call him Daniel, is a guy with a speech impediment and due to a problem with his mouth, he mispronounces words often and is quite hard to understand. (But it is doable with some attention.)

This is the first presentation of the semester so i was curious to how he would be during presentations.

He goes up and reads the slides normally but a bit slowly as to pronounce them properly.

All I hear from the back of the class is this one god damn little brat (would use other terms) laughing at him at the back. Snickering. Every. Single. Time. Daniel. Messes. Up.

What the Actual hell man? You know he has something wrong with him but he is:

A: Actually brave enough to go up there and present even with his impediment.

B: Trying his hardest to do it.

he tries so hard to interact with people and converse with them that you can tell he wants to just chill and talk.

Daniel is braver, stronger and has my respect more than a majority of people in my school.

And you know what?

Screw that kid in the back.

I’m worried my child has a speech disorder. How can you tell?

My son is almost two and still has very limited language. Sometimes he picks up words but won’t use them again or every once in awhile. He uses about 4 words regularly. He excelled in his milestones, except for speech. He did say his first word at a normal time, but he hasn’t developed much since then. My pediatrician seems unconcerned and that we should wait until his second birthday but it’s getting harder and harder at home not being able to communicate. He often defaults to daddy for most words instead of trying to learn new ones. Of course I’ve been looking online and I saw something called apraxia, which sounds similar. I know I need to see a specialist for professional opinions, but rude comments aside, what do you think of this? We read and play all the time and he’s in daycare so it’s not environmental.

Tldr: does my son have a speech disorder?

Kanye addressed his Bipolar disorder in speech at SLC Sunday Service

He basically said that worshiping his ego (himself) led to him having Bipolar disorder, and that learning to worship only one god rid himself of his ego and brought him back to mental health.

Hopefully this means Kanye's back to a healthy place, but in any case, it looks like a total departure from his outlook from the Yeezus - Ye era. Yeezus, TLOP, and Ye all feature two sides of Kanye's personality, but it looks like his new work will leave the duality behind.

AITA for making fun of a person with a disability and about his speech disorder?

So I was playing online game with some friends, and one of my friends was typed angry message in chat because nobody would respond to him.

He figured out his microphone was disabled and i made fun of it because we played for 20 minutes before he figured it out.

Because he just enabled his microphone he sounded weird and i told him he sounds like a chicken and to restart the game.

Later nobody mentioned anything about it but i feel like TA.

So, Aita?

Are there any good writings on stuttering / speech disorders?

Hi folks,

I'm a lifelong stutterer, and have lately been interested in how some theoretical frameworks could be applied to that phenomenon (how stuttering relates to language / the body / disability / sound studies / neurosis / etc). Has anyone written about this, or something adjacent? From my searches, I can't find much outside of speech pathologist textbooks!

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Speech sound disorder

Has anyone else ever had Speech Sound Disorder? I had it until I was about 8, and it took about a year of speech therapy to overcome. I’ve always wondered if it’s related to my having an ASD. I think I mainly had trouble with r’s, l’s, w’s, never really a lisp. Apparently I was getting made fun of behind my back in 1st grade (I was already self-conscious). One thing that stood out to me the most also was on the Thanksgiving I was 5 or 6, I asked my aunt if my baby cousin liked turkey and I couldn’t pronounce the r and she kept asking me what I said, instead of just saying β€œyes” and that was so demoralizing. I mean, I said β€œtucky” on Thanksgiving, what else could I have meant? Anyway that’s how I got in speech therapy.

Anyone else?

Speech disorder and dp

Hello. I experience dp dr for 7 months. I think that the problem of this problem for me is overthinking. Before experiencing this problem I always used to think deeply when I speak something. I used to try to find best sentences to talk something because of my job. Now people seem so weird when they talk. I also wonder how I talk, how my brain finds words, how my mouth say these words. I am in trouble. After my childhood first time I cried alone. How I can recover? I miss my old days and I am about to lose this fight.

Digital assistant or smart speaker for someone with speech disorder (they are mute)

No, this isn't the premise of a joke. If someone is mute or can't speak for various reasons, any options for sending commands/requests to the aforementioned device using a smartphone/tablet/laptop? I get you can make the argument to just use a mobile device to manually type, but this scenario comes to mind.

A mute person has something like a Nest Hub Max, perhaps using it for ASL video chats. But one morning they just wanna know the temperature for the day. Can they use a mobile device to query the location and temp and have it display on the Nest device?

I don't have more specific scenarios as I don't have experience with this and I'm asking because I'm curious how folks with speech disorders (mostly those that can't speak) best utilize digital assistants.

Also, I see from the FAQ: Can I browse the internet using my Home Hub? No. Again the example described is asking if it's possibly send/share a command from a mobile device to the digital assistant instead of verbally requesting it.
