3 Speech Therapy Idea Solutions

Speech therapy idea strategies about Improving Articulation, Stopping Stuttering, and Public Speakers Fear that really could effectively treat or cure several types of vocal disorders. Many good amateurs (and even a few professional spokespersons) consult therapists to cure their articulation, stuttering, based on a strong desire to bring their public speaking skills to a hgher plan. 

These issues may experience a dramatic improvement with a few easy to apply tips that can be started immediately after you have read my overview here 😉

Improving Articulation – Before starting any type of speech therapy idea, I politely recommend you to have a hearing test. Very often, conversation disorders have a physical origin and it is important to explore that avenue first before delivering speech topics.

I have done such an ear test myself, and there was nothing wrong with my personal high and low frequencies hearing. So I could eliminate that path for bettering my natural utterance toolbox. Articulation is vocal expression, the act of uttering words.

If the words or particular sounds are not being vocalized properly, (e.g. labialism – talking with rounded lips or nasalization – through your nose) there are several articulation exercises to improve this condition.

Just start with analyzing your language. Re-create good habits by speaking slowly and clearly every time you feel you are not understand quite well by others. Whenever you miss a single word, repeat it back in your mind, do it carefully and with a little emphasis on the misspoken sound.

Once you are able to recognize the target sound, break the word down into a smaller part to highlight the problem area.

Perhaps it is the s or w sound. When the word is not said correctly, try to fix that part.

Stopping Stuttering – My second speech therapy idea is on stuttering (psellism or traulism) and stammering (dysphemia). This is a disturbance in the flow of the words and sounds and often begins in the early years.

This condition usually worsens under stress and therefore the exercises need to address that area as well. Keep in mind that about 85% of children and even adults stutter at some point in their lives. Very often, this is a temporary condition.

If however, you continue to speak with broken words, there are several steps to take.

Model a good style by speaking slowly and deliberately. Avoid inside little voices like slow down or start over. This draws too much attention to your nerves and creates a negative impression.

The primary focus of this speech therapy idea is on developing a positive conversational style by modeling them yourself and then by gently encouraging yourself.

Public Speakers Fear – The anxiety associated with public speaking can be eliminated with a few quick exercises and speech therapy idea tips for special education teachers. (glossophobia or even worse etreme fear: lalophobia) Before you begin the verbal and nonverbal communication project I advise public speakers to ease the worries like this:

  • Inhale deeply bringing a flow of oxygen to your body.
  • Breathe out slowly. This makes your voice stronger.
  • Think pleasant and positive.
  • Listen to relaxing music.
  • Sleep and rest are important to decrease the stress level.
  • Prepare your speech topics, presentation and practice it in front of a mirror.
  • Expect to succeed!
