So, what exactly does it mean to be Flawsome? Put simply, to be Flawsome is to be awesome with your flaws!

What you have to accept is that stammering is not a flaw it is a medical condition that requires proper treatment. Here, it is:

  • Visit with a doctor or speech-language pathologist: Healthcare professionals and specialists in speech problems can work with you or your child to overcome the effects of stuttering. Stuttering is best treated sooner, rather than later, as it may become more difficult to treat later in life. Contact your doctor if you notice any of the following aspects of your stuttering:
  • Stuttering develops during adulthood.
  • Any muscle tightening or visible difficulty speaking.
  • If you’re stuttering is affecting your social life, work life, or quality of life.
  • Any stuttering that causes anxiety, fear, or loss of self-esteem needs to be addressed.
  • Stuttering that lasts for longer than six months.
  • If stuttering occurs alongside other speech problems.
  • If you notice stuttering worsening either in yourself or in your child.
  • Practice controlled fluency.Speaking quickly can have an effect on the amount of stuttering that occurs in conversation. By slowing down and speaking deliberately, a person can learn exactly when and what triggers their stuttering.Speak slowly and simply. Try saying one syllable words, one at a time. Strive to have each word come out clearly before moving on to the next word.
  • Monitor your speech as you talk, looking for which words or mental states might cause stuttering to occur or worsen.
  • Do not be afraid to leave pauses or silence in your speech. Go at your own pace as you practice.
  • Practice words that you notice as problematic.
  • Gradually increase the length of words and sentences. And then start working towards implementing problematic words in your speech. Ask your doctor about electronic devices that reduce stuttering. There are two main types of devices today that can help with stuttering problems. Some of these are small enough to be worn throughout the day by the person who stutters.
  • One device plays back a  voice of a person to them in an earphone, with a delay. This delay causes the person to slow their speech down, which can reduce stuttering.
  • Another method makes it sound like your own speech is in unison with the speech of another person. Hearing your own speech in this way can also reduce any stuttering.
  • You can also install and make use of some anti-stuttering apps available on iOS and Android.
  •  Work with a cognitive behavioral therapist. The best solution to your problem. By applying the techniques and practices of cognitive behavioral therapy, a person who stutters can learn which mental states might be responsible for worsening their stutter. An added benefit of this therapy is that it can help reduce anxiety, stress or self-esteem issues that may have arisen from the stuttering.
  •  Relax when speaking. Taking your time and saying what you want to say can help you reduce your stuttering. Give yourself plenty of time when speaking and try to remain as calm as you can.
  • Do not always change your words or what you want to say.
  • Take your time and say the words that you want to use.
  • Relaxing and reducing anxiety about speaking can help reduce stuttering.
  • Do not force words. Say them at your own pace. Forcing words can make them more difficult to say
  •   Discover what the main causes of stuttering are. There are three causes of stuttering that are understood today. The two main types are called, developmental and neurogenic. The third and most rare type is termed as psychogenic.
  • Developmental stuttering arises early in a child’s life when they are learning to speak. Most children will have some level of stuttering as they grow, but some will have problems that persist. There is also some evidence that stuttering of this type is genetic and can run in families.
  • Neurogenic stuttering can arise after serious medical issues such as stroke or head trauma. The connections between language centers of the brain and the muscles that are used in speaking are weakened or disconnected.
  • Psychogenic stuttering is caused by exposure to an emotionally traumatic event
  • There is nothing that you can’t do
  • TOURETTE SYNDROME!What is a tic?
  • To Tourette Syndrome (TS) tics are sudden, repetitive, unpredictable, purposeless, no rhythmic, involuntary movements or sounds. Tics that produce movement are called “motor tics,” while tics that produce sound are called “vocal tics” or “phonic tics.” Tics can be either simple or complex.Simple motor tics involve one muscle group and include eye blinking, lip-licking, shoulder shrugging, and head jerking. Complex motor tics involve a coordinated movement produced by a number of muscle groups. For example, touching objects, jumping, or spinning around.
  • Complex motor tics may also include imitating someone else’s actions (echopraxia) or exhibiting inappropriate or taboo gestures of behaviors (copropraxia.)Simple vocal tics include sniffing, grunting, throat clearing, uttering single syllables (e.g. uh-uh-uh) and humming. Complex vocal tics include uttering linguistically meaningful utterances (words and phrases) or changing the pitch and volume of voice. Complex vocal tics may also involve repeating a phrase he/she has heard over and over (echolalia), repeating one’s own words (palilalia) or uttering obscenities or socially taboo phrases (coprolalia).The most important thing to understand about the tics associated with Tourette syndrome is they are the result of a neuropsychiatric condition. The sounds and behaviors are involuntary and are not being done by choice. This is disturbed neurobiological Condition that can be treated well.
