How a speech impediment can affect a persons life

Written by Stephen Hill

There are many types of speech impediment and they all affect a persons life in different ways. Forrepparttar purpose of this article, I am going to concentrate on how stuttering/stammering can disrupt and even ruin a persons life and how at times it makes us accept second best.

For somebody who has a stutter, life at times is a struggle. As a first example, I am going to explain a situation from school. It is an English lesson, and on each persons desk there is a reading book. The teacher says to allrepparttar 149925 pupils that he/she wants everyone inrepparttar 149926 class to read one paragraph fromrepparttar 149927 book. Forrepparttar 149928 person who hasrepparttar 149929 stutter, this is something they fear and they will try to work out which paragraph they will have to read. They do this by countingrepparttar 149930 likely number of people who are ahead of them and then by counting down torepparttar 149931 appropriate paragraph. They will hope this paragraph is quite short, they will then read through it, hoping that there are not too many of their difficult words in there. Most people who stutter have certian words which begin with certian letters that they find harder to say. They then have to wait until there turn to speak, this causes a lot of tension and worry. Byrepparttar 149932 time it is their turn to speak they are basically so nervous that is very unlikely they will be able to say their paragraph fluently.
