I Had Speech Therapy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 84 People

    Sh - S

    I mixed "s" and "sh" up all the time as a kid. Most of the time it wouldn't be a problem, but there are some words that have different meanings, depending on the s/sh. So I had speech therapy in kindergarten. I had those cards that had pictures of things...

    It was hard. I did it from ages 3-7.

    I still can't hold a decent conversation I just rant on about what I want to say. It hasn't always been easy. No doubt I wasn't the cool kid in school. I don't stutter thank god.

    Mysterious

    Everyone is always asking me what my accent is, but the truth is I was born in my country of residence (Canada). While it is true my parents were from England and have English accents, I only lived there one year myself and my sisters, also born in Canada, do not have accents...

    When I was 4 years old.

    I guess it didn't work because I was still stuttering at 5/6/7 years old. I still do sometimes today, actually. It's more of a problem when I'm excited about something or worked up.

    Insparation For Me To Keep On Doing What I Do!

    When I was three-years-old, my mother, accompanied by the Beatles ‘Drive My Car’, drove me to Nancy. Nancy was a tall woman with crazy black hair. We played games that prompted me to say my ‘trouble’ sounds. When these words came up, she would pause the game, and drill me...

    *arah?

    My name is Sarah and I was born with hemifacial microsomia, meaning that one side of my face is smaller than the other. Sometimes it paralyzes people but I was fortunate enough not to have been born like that. Anyway, I had difficulty saying my "s/sh"s for a long time and went to...

    :/ This post is going to make me uncomfortable

    but posts like that are what this community is for. So here goes. When I was little, I had problems with many sounds. So I was put into speech class. I was in there from Pre School to 7th Grade. I learned all my sounds except for a couple. I was taken out for some unknown reason...

    When I Was 4...

    I went to occupational therapy for my speech and to develop my upper body strength because I was born 2 months early. That was just about my entire 4th year. I stuttered all the time. I'm glad I'm not the only one. :)
