  • My child is two and stutters | ד"ר פלואנסי

    Home Page In The Media Our Graduates Speak Articles Contact More for a free evaluation Call one of our national lines now: (917) 455-1419 For Hebrew Site My child is two years old and he stutters! Stuttering at the age of two is not defined as stuttering as in adults. It is a difficulty in speaking that occurs in children from one and a half to five years old and is related to their practice in acquiring language and speaking skills. Stuttering at the age of two should not be perceived as a chronic problem, but this phenomenon definitely worries parents and they turn to a speech therapist for clarification. According to the data of Ambi Association - the organization of stutterers in Israel, about 20% of children up to the age of five suffer from speech difficulties. In 75% of cases the problem will go away, and if it does not go away by the time the baby teeth are replaced, then it is a chronic problem that needs treatment. Speech difficulties in children that will pass as mentioned, experts claim Christians following a motor difficulty in a child, who perceives complex sentences but cannot express them. What is important is to treat any problem of speech difficulty, even if it is temporary, in a professional way because neglecting the treatment can make the problem more serious and chronic. When to contact a speech therapist! In the case of stuttering at the age of two, when the child suffers from a lack of fluency of speech with high frequency, it must be verified that the problem continues even after the age of three (in most cases it goes away on its own) and if the problem continues, he must be taken to a speech therapist who has undergone special certification in the Lidcombe method. The treatment is designed to prevent the child suffering from stuttering from reaching a situation where repetition of syllables, a sudden stop in the middle of a word or sentence can be seen. Effort of eyes, face, hands or feet in an effort to speak fluently. Insecurity, embarrassment or shame in the child up to his avoidance of speaking or making contact may introduce him to a vicious cycle of attempt, failure, avoidance and God forbid. Stuttering in children is varied for many reasons! Stuttering or difficulty speaking in children can be due to all kinds of reasons. First, of course, there are motor reasons, related to the development of the muscles of the mouth and jaw. Function of the organs of speech, breathing and diaphragm and more. Some children will stutter in certain situations and not in others. Some are aware of this, some are not. Those who are aware and sensitive to the matter will react with a variety of "ridiculous" efforts to continue speaking, such as blinking, grimacing, and their sensitivity will increase and may even worsen the speech problem. One of the things that may make it easier for the children is the attitude of the parents and educators. It is very important that the parents do not show pressure or anxiety about the child's stuttering speech, do not warn him about it and spare him the shame and feelings of guilt. The right thing to do is to take the child to a speech therapist and consult with him about stuttering treatment, whether it is stuttering at the age of two or at any other age. Many speech therapists agree that even in the case of a child who suffers from a transient stutter, the rigid and uncompromising attitude of the parents may put the child in a state of stress and anxiety that worsens her speech problem, which may also turn it from a temporary problem into a chronic problem. Stuttering after trauma! Trauma or an accident can have an effect in worsening stuttering or speech difficulty but it is important to understand that it is not the cause of this. This is a mental condition that manifests itself in the worsening of physiological problems and, among other things, in the worsening of lack of fluency in speech, in the exaggeration of anxiety or lack of confidence, and these are manifested in stuttering in speech, repetition of words, inability to pronounce words. In such cases it is important not to add to the stress and anxiety and to try to give the child tools to speak fluently and more confidently and in some cases emotional therapy should be accessed if the emotional problem is severe and is not resolved when the child gains confidence in speaking. for a free compatibility check So how do you overcome stuttering? rehabilitation process for the speech system which will teach us again how to control the system and how not to let stuttering dictate the way we produce speech, what I say and our life in general.

  • Stuttering in adults | ד"ר פלואנסי

    Stuttering in adults In the process of language acquisition in children between the ages of one and a half to five, speech disorders can be identified, but these should pass by the time the baby teeth change. When the child continues to stutter after this age, it is probably a chronic stuttering that requires professional treatment by someone authorized for this. For many years, studies were conducted on stuttering in adults, including people who suffer from stuttering. In neurological brain scans of adults who stutter and those who do not, which were conducted as part of the research, a number of variables were discovered that are specific to people who stutter: • When stuttering, there is increased activity in the right lobe of the brain compared to the left lobe, which accelerates its activity when emotion is added to stuttering. • In adults who do not stutter when speaking, there is hyperactivity in the left lobe. • It was thought that the increased use when speaking in right lobe stutterers may be due to defects in the speech area of the left lobe. • Another possibility that came up is that the overactivity in the right lobe stems from the stutterer's active emotions and not necessarily from the stuttering. • Adult stutterers cannot feel the muscles that activate speech during speech effort and therefore have no ability to compare if they are activating them correctly. • A study was done that focused on the anatomical area in the brain responsible for hearing. From the conclusions it emerged that in stutterers this area is larger in the right lobe than in the left (as in most people). • In adults who stutter, overactivity of the area responsible for controlling the motor activity of speech was discovered, i.e. (vocal cords, breathing, tongue, lips, jaw). • In various imaging studies conducted on adults who suffer from stuttering, it was found that reduced blood flow to various areas of the brain was demonstrated, and there is a possibility that it also contributes to stuttering. • It was found that in people who do not stutter when asked to perform a certain action, their tension increased and a 4% speech disorder was created. • Under stress in stutterers, 9 times more speech disorders were found. • has a circular pattern of stuttering. Disruption in the first syllable of the first word, speaking in sequence, the speech is interrupted by another stutter and repeats, God forbid. The emotional aspect of Dr. Fluency's speech design method! It is known that overcoming problems often requires from the people who experience a certain difficulty, the ability to put the difficulties behind them and open a new page, especially when treating a stuttering problem in adults. This is especially true when it comes to a speech disorder. When the person suffering from a stuttering problem knows and understands that he has difficulty speaking, this fact in itself puts pressure on him and creates tension in him, every time he opens his mouth. This is a normal phenomenon and not only in speech, a person who suffers from any limitation and is aware of it, will sometimes find it difficult to overcome it just because of the knowledge that it exists. When it comes to speech fluency, the ability to overcome the "trauma" that was created is, in our opinion at the Dr. Fluency Institute, the first condition for the stutterer to overcome the stutter. Along with Dr. Fluency's tablet, which was developed for the practice of the person who stutters, there is a series of pronunciation, breathing and relaxation classes that give the person the opportunity to learn to speak again and especially differently. When speech is learned differently, you can put aside the difficult experiences and speech traumas and really start speaking again without stuttering With a scientifically proven stuttering treatment method, emphasizing the emotional aspects arising from the difficulty in speaking and dealing with them, we will learn to overcome the stuttering. With Dr. Fluency's unique treatment method, we not only learn to speak again and how to speak fluently, but also how to deal with the difficulty and fear of speaking and get used to speaking in any everyday situation without fear and fluently!!!. for a free compatibility check So how do you overcome stuttering?

Recognition Contact More for a free evaluation Call one of our national lines now: (917) 455-1419 For Hebrew Site When is it recommended to start treating stuttering? The disorder of speech fluency (stuttering) is a disorder in the full sense of the word, because it prevents people who suffer from it from communicating correctly with the environment. Those who suffer from stuttering tend to avoid creating communication, "save" words, prevent themselves from expressing an opinion and expression and the damage caused to them involves real suffering of a feeling of embarrassment, and difference. About 1% of the population suffers from a stuttering disorder that is more common in boys, and 5% of children aged 3-5 suffer from a stuttering that in most cases passes. A distinction must be made between stuttering in young children, which goes away within a few years, and speech fluency disorder, which is also a transient phenomenon at young ages, and in any case, the diagnosis between the two cases should only be made by qualified speech therapists. What is developmental speech fluency? When to treat stuttering? Children who suffer from a stuttering disorder may feel frustrated, unsuccessful, develop insecurity and even deliberately avoid communication or establishing relationships and often find themselves lonely and frustrated. It is recommended even before the child develops frustration and a sense of inferiority, to take him for treatment and diagnosis at the Dr. Fluency Institute, which will give him tools on how to develop the fluency of speech and give him confidence that this is a phenomenon that will pass, a fact in itself can give the child confidence and indirectly also help him overcome the embarrassment and the disturbance herself. Treatment of stuttering - because when there is a scientifically proven solution, why not start now? Fluency in speech is more common among children aged 2-4 than stuttering. It is about speaking with pauses, hesitation. The child is stopped, stuck, does not know how to continue the sentence. Repeats words, and tries to complete a sentence and fails. Many times the listeners have the feeling that the child may be confused, didn't plan the sentence, doesn't know how to continue it, or doesn't know exactly what he wants to say, and that the source of the lack of fluency in speech stems from a lack of planning or an inability to express himself, which are part of the language learning process. Moreover, the child himself does not suffer or seem disturbed by the lack of fluency of speech and both he and the environment treat it as a passing event and indeed in later stages of learning the language this phenomenon disappears and in most cases no professional treatment is needed. What is a speech fluency disorder (stuttering)? Stuttering at young ages compared to lack of developmental speech fluency is a noticeable and clear phenomenon. These are cases in which the child seems to know what he wants to say and knows how to say it, only that he loses control of his speech and the word "doesn't come out" to him. The child has difficulty pronouncing or producing certain sounds, gets stuck, stops and is unable to control speech and pronunciation. He repeats words Again and again, trying to continue the sentence from them, but we got stuck later on as well. The feeling of the listeners will be that the child himself suffers from frustration due to the inability to pronounce words, and because of this he even tries to "suppress" the speech, which puts him in a cycle of anxiety, getting stuck, and anxiety again.

    Home Page In The Media Our Graduates Speak Articles Contact More for a free evaluation Call one of our national lines now: (917) 455-1419 For Hebrew Site Treating Stuttering- How and When? The phenomenon of stuttering is a widespread phenomenon found everywhere and in every culture. There are different theories for the origin of the problem, as well as different techniques and methods that try to help those who suffer from stuttering. When it comes to "developmental" stuttering that appears at the age of 2-3, it should go away in 80% of cases without intervention. When it comes to "stuttering" in an adult person that has become a chronic speech disorder, there are various methods that try to treat the disorder, but the results, if any, will usually be partial and will practically always not last. Whereas their is only one method that has proven itself today and for the past over 10 years and leads to 100% success in dealing with stuttering this is the method of the Dr. Fluency Institute, based on the Precision Fluency Shaping method. With this method, the person who stutters learns to speak again while learning to control the speech system, which allows him to overcome the stutter. Stuttering treatment - everything starts with technique! For many years, stuttering disorder appeared in the American psychiatric catalog as a psychological disorder. Only in its latest version, DSM-5, was the definition of developmental fluency disorder changed to Childhood onset disorder, this is evidence to the directions of treatments that were used, and are still used today in treating PWS. The starting point in the treatment was psychological. The person who stutters probably experiences a sense of being different, feelings of inferiority, lack of self-confidence, inability to communicate and anxiety. These feelings prevented them from going to social gatherings, job interviews, dates, etc. The psychologists or psychiatrists who treated people who stutter considered the consequences of stuttering on the patient's psyche and treated those symptoms. The goal was to spare the patients the shame and anxiety, and to cause a higher motivation in trying to deal with the disorder. What happens to the person who stutters? Since stuttering is now accompanied by difficult internal feelings, the stress in itself creates difficulty in speaking fluently (not just for stutterers...). When a person who stutters begins to speak, in his conscious memory he experiences difficult feelings of all his speech failures from now and forever, and these overwhelm him with a sense of frustration, loss of control, fear, anxiety, pressure and inferior feelings. This seems like a foregone conclusion that leads to continue stuttering, then another failure that joins the previous attempts. All entering the collective memory which will flood the PWS in the next attempt. Treatment of stuttering using Dr. Fluency's method is the most professional method for treating stuttering. A scientifically proven method that has helped thousands of patients around the world restore control thus resulting in clear speech flow to people who stutter. for a free compatibility check So how do you overcome stuttering? rehabilitation process for the speech system which will teach us again how to control the system and how not to let stuttering dictate the way we produce speech, what I say and our life in general.

  • Stuttering what is it? How do you treat | ד"ר פלואנסי

    Take care of the speech first and only then turn to the psychological problems that may still remain! Stuttering what is it? How do you treat With the understanding that a person suffering from stuttering or another speech disorder does not suffer from emotional problems, but that they arise as a result of the stuttering, the therapists realized that in order for him not to suffer from the emotional problems, the stuttering must be treated. The success of the stuttering treatment will lead him to overcome all the problems created because of the stuttering. But to her and a thorn in her. One of the problems of people who stutter is that they often fail to speak from the habit that is ingrained in them, from the memory of their failed speech, so how can one learn to speak without entering again into the same vicious circle of severe feelings of failure? Stuttering - what exactly is it and how is it treated? Many years ago, stuttering was diagnosed as a psychological problem. People who stutter turned to psychologists to "solve" the psychological problems that caused them to stutter. This was the approach of medicine towards the field of stuttering, which of course did not contribute anything to the community of stutterers but caused further serious frustrations because the problem, from the beginning, was not a psychological problem at all. On the contrary, it is the disturbance in the flow of speech that causes psychological problems and then, it can worsen following the psychological state of the person suffering from it. The psychological problems of people who stutter! Dr. Fluency's method of treating stuttering is imparting a new fluency of speech, based on new learning of breathing, pronunciation and practice with a special tablet. The patient is required to forget everything he knows about speech (and therefore will not fail because he will not use his speech memory). He learns to breathe again, and slowly and gradually learns to pronounce words without stress, until he manages to pronounce them, and gradually gains confidence (because for the first time he manages to pronounce whole words without getting stuck...). This is how he learns, like a baby learning his first steps to acquire a new, different speech, without fail. Without the mistakes of the past, without the stuttering, without the speech disorder and above all controlled speech that does not get stuck. Even if an old jam comes up, the ability to correct and continue talking without those around even noticing that it happened will be in the patient's hands. The next step is correct and consistent practice of the correct speech tools he learned in order to preserve the results over days and years, as well as learning the ways of applying the "new speech" in all the different speech situations. This is with personal guidance from a person who has gone through the treatment himself and knows what needs to be faced and what is needed to overcome the obstacles, mainly with the help of cognitive-behavioral therapy in which by the process of dealing with the stressful situations caused by the speech fluency disorder over the years, and a change in the balance of successes/failures Experience the victories - the victory of the method over the stuttering. Imagine a person who knows he has a disability, and some other disability. He can't speak fluently. Every person who suffers from some abnormality often chooses to distance himself from society, feeling rejected and unworthy because of his difference. Speech is our only means of communication. Therefore, when a person suffers from a speech problem and fails to speak, he fails to produce communication, does not produce communication, knows that he does not produce communication and then does not try to produce it either. He finds ways to stay away from verbal communication, finds a job where he doesn't need to talk, many times avoids relationships with members of the opposite sex due to shame and a feeling that he will be rejected and sometimes finds himself lonely, distant and anxious about his situation. In the past, when such a person sought psychological treatment, the therapists attributed the speech problem to his mental state. The assumption was that he stuttered because he was anxious, stressed, shy or insecure. Today we know much more about stuttering. A person who stutters does not stutter because he is anxious or stressed or shy, etc., he stutters first of all and because of that he has all the difficult feelings that accompany a person who fails in fluency. לבדיקת התאמה חינם

  • Adults who stutter what can be done? | ד"ר פלואנסי

    Stuttering in adults - what can be done? When talking about stuttering in adults, it is important to understand that a distinction must be made between developmental stuttering in children and stuttering that remains permanent in an adult. When children start to speak, until they acquire the language, the speaking technique and master all the vowels, they can develop some kind of speech disorder, but it passes with time. When the speech disorder remains even at mature ages, after the language acquisition stage, it is understood that there is a permanent speech disorder of stuttering, or abrupt and rapid speech. This disorder often includes side effects such as stress, head movements, convulsions, etc. Stuttering in adults is evident when adults who are aware that they have a speech disorder find indirect ways to seemingly overcome the problem. Techniques to "correct" stuttering in adults! Older people who are aware that they have a speech disorder will invent all kinds of ways to start and finish a sentence because they know they won't be able to do it like people without speech flow disorders. They look for and find ways to make it easier for themselves to communicate which sometimes requires a huge effort from them to start and finish one complete and clear sentence. The most correct definition today for a problem with speech fluency is: a spontaneous, momentary loss of control over the speech system while speaking. What happens with the person who stutters is that he wants to say a word, he knows what the word is, he knows how to say it, but he gets stuck. The word doesn't come out. Stuttering in adults is a loss of control at the moment of truth over the word he wanted to say and this is a terrible and very difficult feeling. To try and overcome stuttering, the adult who is aware of his speech problem tries to continue the sentence anyway and then either he repeats the same word several times because he cannot move on to the next word, or he omits the word that is difficult for him to say, and then the sentence is incomplete and unclear. In any case, the communication is disrupted and not understood. Sometimes he will start talking very fast in order to finish and say everything he wants until he "gets stuck", sometimes he will swallow part of the words or sounds in which he gets stuck more and his speech will be abrupt and unclear. Stuttering in adults may develop body and facial convulsions, blush, stress and behave in an unclear manner whose entire purpose is to hide his embarrassment, shame and helplessness. Or at all avoid speaking and keep it as short as possible to reduce the outbursts. for a free compatibility check Dr. Fluency's method successfully treats adults! At the center of Dr. Fluency's approach is the principle that you can learn to speak again! Since a speech fluency disorder is caused by a loss of control over speech, the person must be taught to speak again, not in the sense of what to say to whom, but how to speak correctly without losing control. With Dr. Fluency's method, the person suffering from a speech disorder learns to repronounce letters and words, learns to breathe and actually learns to speak again just as that person who has had a stroke learns to walk again. The success of our method in the process of treating stuttering lies in the fact that one of the main problems of stuttering in adults and people suffering from speech disorders is that they know and remember their speech failures, but when they learn to speak again, they are also asked to erase their internal memory in order to be able to speak again, to breathe again and forget that they suffered from any speech disorder. When you learn to speak again, you can overcome the difficulties that the old speech brought with it! So how do you overcome stuttering? In order to overcome stuttering, we must go through a rehabilitation process for the speech system which will teach us again how to control the system and how not to let stuttering dictate the way we produce speech, what I say and our life in general. You can hear more about the subject in the fascinating lecture we give as part of the compatibility test.

  • מהו גמגום | ד"ר פלואנסי

    מהו גימגום? להפרעת שטף הדיבור המכונה “גמגום” אחראיים, כך על פי מומחים תורשה ונוירו פיזיולוגיה או במילים אחרות- התפקוד המוחי המשפיע על השרירים והעצבים. ישנם מגמגמים ידועים רבים לאורך ההיסטוריה כגון : משה רבנו, קלאודיוס קיסר, המלך ג'ורג' השישי, ווינסטון צ'רצ'יל, ג'ו ביידן ועוד. עפ”י ספר המחלות האמריקאי שהוא “התנ”ך” של כל המחלות הידועות בעולם, יוחס בעבר לגמגום היבט נפשי, זאת משום שהמגמגמים בדרך כלל גם סובלים מקשת של בעיות אישיות וחברתיות. רק בשנים האחרונות שונתה הגדרת הגמגום בספר הנ”ל לאחר שהתברר כי הקשיים החברתיים והאישיים של המגמגמים נובעים מן הגמגום ולא הם המקור לגמגום עמו, אלא נגזרות שלו. דרגות שונות של גימגום ישנן דרגות שונות של גמגום, החל מהפרעת שטף דיבור קלה וכמעט בלתי מורגשת, ועד לגמגום קשה המונע מהאדם המגמגם יצירת קשר. אדם זה יכול לחזור באופן בלתי רצוני על הגאים, או מילים מסוימות, להתקשות לומר אחת או יותר ולחזור עליה שוב ושוב, בלי יכולת לומר אותה נכון ולהמשיך את המשפט. סממן נוסף של מגמגמים הוא חוסר היכולת להמשיך ולדבר, תוך הפעלת לחץ (בלתי רצוני) על מייתרי הקול. האדם עלול להסמיק, להילחץ, לעוות את פניו ולחוש מבוכה ובושה נוכח חוסר היכולת להגות מילה מסוימת. מאוד לא נעים, מאוד פוגע. בגלל שהגמגום גורם לאדם להביע מבוכה ובושה, הופך אותו לחריג וגורם לו הרבה פעמים להימנע מיצירת קשרים, חיפוש עבודה וכו’, נטו כאמור במשך שנים רבות לייחס לגמגם בעיות נפשיות. ישנם אף המכנים את הגמגום כ"נכות שקופה" מאחר ואדם יכול להסתובב בין אנשים מבלי שידעו על ההפרעה אצלו כל עוד הוא לא ידבר או ידבר בצורות שונות שנועדו להסתיר את הגמגום.. פיסית – מהו גמגום? המנגנונים האחראים על השפה עושים “עבודת צוות” להפקת דיבור. מדובר על תפקוד בו זמנית של כל שרירי הפנים,הפה, השפתיים, הלסת, הלשון, הסרעפת וכל מערכת הנשימה כל זאת תוך הפקת צלילם בקצב כ"כ מהיר שהפלא הגדול הוא שאנו בכלל מצליחים לדבר . אז השאלה מדוע מגמגמים מתגמדת לנוכח השאלה איך בכלל מדברים. ולכן מאוד מובן שבהפעלת מערכת כ"כ מסובכת תהינה תקלות. איפה בדיוק זה מתרחש? לפי ההשערה המדעית הרווחת הכל מתחיל בפקודות שהמח שולח למיתרי הקול. ההעניין הוא שהמח שולח פקודה "לא טובה" להנעל תוך כדי דיבור במקום להפתח ולהסגר בעדינות תוך כדי הוצאת אוויר, ומכאן מתפתחות כל התופעות לוואי השונות להפרעת שטף הדיבור כגון הגמגום הלחיצות וכו'.. אדם שמגמגם חש חוסר אונים כאשר הוא מדבר. משום שהוא יודע שהוא מגמגם, מופעל עליו לחץ בלתי סביר והדיבור שלו נכשל שוב ושוב כאשר לניסיונות הללו מצטרפים גם רגשות אשם, תחושת כישלון, בושה כאמור ועד להימנעות טוטאלית מדיבור. לבדיקת התאמה חינם אז איך מתגברים על הגמגום? ע"מ להתגבר על הגמגום יש לעבור תהליך שיקומי למערכת הדיבור אשר ילמד אותנו בחזרה איך לשלוט במערכת ואיך לא לתת לגמגום להכתיב לנו את אופן הפקת הדיבור, מה אני אומר ואת החיים שלנו בכלל. תוכלו לשמוע יותר בהרחבה על הנושא בהרצאה המרתקת שאנו מעבירים במסגרת בדיקת ההתאמה.

  • גמגום בגיל 3 | ד"ר פלואנסי

    Gallery במכון דוקטור פלואנסי אנו להורים במצב הזה אומרים זה לתמוך בילד, לא להקשות עליו בהגייה של המילים, לא לדרוש ממנו להגות אותן נכון (כי הוא כנראה לא מסוגל בשלב הזה) ולהחמיא לו על כל הצלחה. כל הפעלת לחץ ותגמול על דיבור נכון וכדומה יגרמו לו להרגיש שמעבירים עליו ביקורת, שיש ציפיות ממנו והרבה פעמים רק בגלל זה הוא ייכשל בדיבור. הפעלת לחץ מכל סוג שהוא על ילד שמתקשה בדיבור היא טעות מרה שעלולה רק להחריף את הבעיה.. . כאשר בגמגום נמשך מעבר לגיל ארבע עלולה להתקבע הפרעת שטף הדיבור ולכן ניתן כבר להתחיל ולטפל בה .שיטת הטיפול הסטנדרטית של מכון ד"ר פלואנסי אינה מתאימה לילדים מתחת לגיל 8 אבל בגילאים 4-6 ישנה שיטה נוספת וניתן לקבל על כך פרטים, בשיחת התאמה עם נציג המכון. הורים שחוזים בילדם בן השלוש המנסה לדבר ולא מצליח להוציא מילים, בהחלט עוברים חוויה לא נעימה. השאלה האם מדובר בגמגום? בעבר ייחסו את הגמגום לא להפרעה בהפקת הדיבור אלא בקושי רגשי כלשהו הגורם לילד לגמגם.. אחרי אין סוף מחקרים הגיעו החוקרים למסקנה כי מדובר בכשל אורגני נוירולוגי ולא רגשי. מהסיבה הזו טיפולים רגשיים ופסיכולוגים אינם המענה לבעיה אלא רק לבעיות רגשיות הנלוות אליה והדרך לפתרון הבעיה עצמה מתחיל קודם כל בדיבור עצמו כמו תוכנית הטיפול המצליחה של מכון דוקטור פלואנסי היודעת לשלב בין נתינת הכלים לדיבור שוטף ודרך ההתמודדות עם הקשיים הרגשיים הכרוכים בדיבור.. 5 % מהי לדים בגיל 3! חמשה אחוזים מילדים בני ה-3 יפתחו הפרעות בשטף הדיבור בשלב זה או אחר, אך ב80% מהמקרים הגמגום חולף מעצמו בלי שנצטרך לטפל בו כלל ולכן גם כאשר ילד בן 3 מתחיל לגמגם אנו צריכים לחכות ולבדוק האם הפרעת השטף מתקבעת או לא כי רוב הסיכויים שלא נדרש לעשות כלום. כמובן שגם בתקופה זאת מומלץ לפעול לפי ההנחיות הנ"ל ורק אם אחרי גיל 4 הגמגום ממשיך יש ליצור קשר עם מכון ד"ר פלואנסי בכדי להתייעץ בעניין ולקבוע אבחון. מתי מדובר בהפרעת שטף הדיבור (גמגום)? מומחי מכון דוקטור פלואנסי מסבירים שבין גיל שנתיים לחמש יש ילדים שאף שהחלו כבר לדבר בשטף, יתקעו באמצע מילה או משפט, יאריכו הברות מסוימות, עשויים להוסיף גם מילים או צלילים ולא תמיד מדובר בהפרעת שטף הדיבור. לעיתים מדובר בשלב בהתפתחות המוח והדיבור.. גמגום אז איך נדע לזהות אם מדובר בהפרעת שטף הדיבור? כאשר יש פער בין ההבנה והחשיבה והילד לא תמיד מצליח לבחור את המילים הנכונות לא בהכרח מדובר בהפרעת שטף אבל כאשר אנו רואים שהוא מתקשה גם בהגיית מילים שהוא לא צריך לחשוב עליהן מראש חוזר על הברות יותר מכפי שנדרש ע"מ להיזכר במילה או לשלוף מילה כנראה שמדובר בהפרעת שטף הדיבור. וכאשר הילד יודע מה הוא רוצה להגיד וזה פשוט לא יוצא לו. הוא נתקע, מתחיל לגמגם וכו' ואז יכול לפעמים להתלוות לקושי הזה גם קושי רגשי ותחושות של בושה, לחץ ובלבול שגורמים לילד לגמגם יותר.. לבדיקת התאמה חינם
