Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
I feel you are over reacting to a simple problem. The children of this will be having some amount of stammering. The more you display your anxiety, the more the child becomes troubled and might not improve. Just forget it for time being and do not make much fuss about this with the child. If the same continues for a year or two then you would require the help of a speech therapist as well as a child psychologist.

Hi! I m suffering from stammering badly. Whenever, I have to meet with a new person I become nervous and my heartbeat goes fast my hands becomes cool and I stammer always on a first word in this situation. Most humiliating thing is this that whenever I stammer I jerk my face so weirdly that I feel ashamed of it. I have seen other stammerers also they dont jerk face but I still haven t found the answer for it that why I jerk my face while stammering. I even can t introduce myself to any new person. Whenever I talk to known person I feel relaxed and calm and can talk easily without stammering. I have gone through some speech therapies but still stammering is my biggest weakness ever which is affecting my professional, personal and interpersonal life. I m waiting for your kind reply. Thanks

My son has been large since in utero. He is now 20 months, 35.5 inches long, 38.5 pounds and has a 20 head. I went to a new pediatrician yesterday to try to get speech therapy for him as he only says 2 words and just two weeks ago had ear tubes and can just now pass a hearing test. The new pediatrician is concerned about his size and referred me to a geneticist. The only thing I can figure out she is concerned about is Sotos Syndrome. He doesn t have any of the physical characteristics but I m still scared-he has low tone and was late to crawl and walk and has a speech delay. My family is full (on both sides) of men from 6 2 to 6 8. Should I be worried?
