Common Questions and Answers about Speech therapy voice goals


3060903 tn?1398568723 Many people get nervous or self-conscious on occasion, like when giving a speech or interviewing for a new job. But social anxiety, or social phobia, is more than just shyness or occasional nerves. With social anxiety disorder, your fear of embarrassing yourself is so intense that you avoid situations that can trigger it. But no matter how painfully shy you may be and no matter how bad the butterflies, you can learn to be comfortable in social situations and reclaim your life.
799827 tn?1237599735 My Jen's speech is wonderful, but it is more like she talks at us as a story, but can't do the give and take part of speech. She is very literal. Her doc's eval stated that she has pragmatic speech delays, social delays, anxieties. How you said that your son would vomit from the smallest thing, I completely relate. It could be us telling her that we are going to the park, and she was shake and say, "No, I want to stay home, I'm tired." Then shake and vomit.
Avatar f tn Find out if they can support him in his social interaction skills etc without a diagnosis. You could phone up the speech and language therapy department and talk to them. You could get a private report if you preferred from a SALT. Also, as he is 10 and will soon be moving to secondary school (age 11+), I would also recommend visiting schools in your area and finding out which of them has experience of teaching children with aspergers.
Avatar f tn We are not giving up hope. His speech improves daily. His eating is improving but in the meeting today they said we may never be able to remove the feed tube. Not only do I not believe these doctors/nurse/therapist, I correct them constantly. Needless to say Im not the most popular at the rehab center but I do have their respect and understanding that I will not accept anything less than the best care for my father. We make sure they take good care of my mother too.
Avatar f tn We are in group and individual therapy, but since this was such a late catch he is incredibly socially deficient. He wants friends so badly but he doesn't respect/understand boundaries, so he's always in your face. He has this thing about touching and has to be touching something constantly, this DOES include classmates and their body parts. I get to the point where I want to scream. Please.. if any of you know what I'm going through, shout out and let me know I'm not alone.
Avatar f tn And I had difficulty swallowing since my stroke and just found out that a simple speech therapy exercise could fix it. So there are more solutions for you as well. Is health insurance a problem for you? Please let me know what you decide to do.
Avatar n tn Even with 100% willingness on your husband's part to get into therapy with you and start looking at the marriage and instituting the concomitant BEHAVIOR changes that would be mandated by such psychological examination, I think it'll still be like chipping away at a boulder with an ice pick. I'd probably just leave, if it were me.
Avatar n tn A speech therapist works with her and she can read, write some (copies words) and has progressed with food (a feeding tube to puree foods to soft - ground foods). The speech therapist has positive prognosis for speech improvements over the next year. I'm wondering how paralysis recovery works? She has physio and Occupational therapy working her muscles but do people with paralysis get some motor function back and if so what type of time frame (3,6,12, months?
1312898 tn?1314571733 CT. Second, did she prescribe physical therapy for your arms? This is a must. You cannot heal if you have only been instructed to wear splints. Splints will not help you heal, bottom line. I'm not a doctor -- but I am ergonomist and I know a lot about this problem.

As far is Neuropathy, when she said "we don’t know the source of yours because you don’t have diabetes” ..
Avatar n tn there are certain criteria he seems to meet, but then other criteria, like difficulty with imaginative play, rubbing or licking things, flapping hands, lack of eye contact, speech developement, and so on....he has no problems with. So I guess what I am wondering is how much of this criteria has to be meet in order to consider a child as having Autism?
649848 tn?1484935765 For those that are saying you don't think anything will get done, did you not listen to the Presidents speech last night? Were you not a little bit inspired. At least he is reaching out and saying he will work with the other side. That's a start in the right direction IMO...I mean have more faith. Congress does need to come together.
1323357 tn?1274826939 And a great way of doing this is by focusing on bettering yourself physically. It gives you goals, and something very worthwhile to work at every day. You absolutely must cut caffeine out of your diet. It will aggravate anxiety and DP. Plus, they also tend to disrupt sleep patterns, which as we know are directly related to DP. Firstly, it increases heart pressure something you absolutely don't need when trying to get rid of anxiety.
Avatar n tn I did 6 months of speech therapy to learn how to finish sentences and swallow. Since then, my left vocal chord has moved past mid line to compensate, but my voice is still soft and I get fatigued and sore if I talk too much. It is almost impossible for me have a conversation in a loud restaurant. I still experience pain on the incision that is below my breast. My rib cage, below my breast to above my waist is still numb. I cannot touch my right breast at all!
220476 tn?1212722950 Besides running my older son from therapy to therapy weekly I have completely isolated myself. I use the babies nap as an excuse not to do more things. I often wonder if people know I have a problem. I wonder if it's obvious and I'm just oblivious to it... I hope not. I'm so glad that you are doing well. It's so nice to have somebody who I can talk to about this.
286034 tn?1201100440 My PT asked me this morning what my long term goals for therapy was and I told him that I wanted to play on an adult women's softball team next spring. He told me that he would see me there.lol Thank you for giving me this oportunity.
Avatar n tn I am a 34 year-old active, white female, average height, very healthy weight. I had an interior carotid dissection over a week ago, they think from a sports trauma (though I didn't do anything where I knowingly hurt myself). Luckily, I have 100% collateral blood flow, no brain damage, no shifting, etc...best possible outcome. Interestingly, in addition, I have tested positive for antiphospholipid antibodies (after testing false-positive for syphilis---common, who knew).
Avatar f tn Let me first say, this is in no way meant to be a speech. You sound like a very sweet level headed girl. I am just speaking from ALOT of experience!!!! First of all the grass is never greener on the other side. I have been married for 12 years. My hubby and I have been to heXX and back, but finally in the the last 2 yrs we finally have the marriage we have always wanted.

503727 tn?1210442710 So I started seeing a therapist who coached me through cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Basically, you describe your train of thought when you are feeling panicky, identify the point where you "derail", and try to recognize it the next time and do it differently. You're trying to adjust your body's natural instinct for "fight or flight", so to speak. It really works. I'm telling you, therapy helped me more than any medication.
Avatar n tn If my brother were a kid today, he would be evaluated, in therapy, diagnosed with ADHD, on medication, and in special classes. My mother always received notes from school about his behavior (he was even paddled by the principal a few times), he would do really stupid and sometimes dangerous things and he struggled academically.
Avatar n tn I have found that group therapy and a low dose of xanax help. I take the xanax only when having a panic attack and it helps. I refuse to take anti depressants anymore though.
Avatar n tn it was not a mole and that I needed to biopsy it, well I left mad, acting like a little girl and went to cry out to my husband and told him that if the hospital called me again to tell them not to call me anymore in a mad voice, my husband followed my ignorant advise and did exactly as I told him, but not without a fight, he told me if I didn't care about my 4 kids or him, well I told him I did, but to respect my decision. End of story.
Avatar f tn You've taken enormous and important first strides by cutting off the gravy train, which no doubt has caused you significant guilt, but it must be done, otherwise you have the dependency still there. I think therapy is a wonderful idea, and you should continue with it. But the first step, dear woman, is to get YOUR life back. I mean it, set aside your relationship with and access to son and granddaughter right now. Deal with YOUR side of the equation. Obsess? Why obsess?
Avatar n tn Sometimes there does seem to be a presence, but always the inability to move and fear is there, Once i jumped or jolted the feelengs used to end and then i was awake, However now when i lie there and cannot move and twich or force my self to wake, i feel as tho i wakeup and get up or move around and suddenly im lead down asleep again unable to move,or speak or scream, Sometimes i think just my hand can move or my eyes or my voice, and i will now wake up upto 10 times n find that i am sti
