Free Help for Parents of Children Who Stammer

If you have recently noticed that your child is stammering more than usual, it could be cause for concern. However, most of the time it is only a temporary phase and not something you should be overly concerned with. Even so, you can’t discount it altogether because there is a slight possibility that if left untreated, your child will continue stammering into adulthood. Sometimes, doctors and speech pathologists can’t pinpoint the underlying reason why a child stutters, but there are proven ways parents can help their children who have developed a stammer.

School Speech Therapists and Pathologists

Most public schools still have speech pathologists employed by the district. You may hear them referred to as speech therapists, but don’t be concerned. There is no difference. It’s all in a name. While they may not be at every school full-time, in fact, they rarely are, but the service is free for all children attending county schools. If you notice that your elementary school-age child is stammering more than what you or your child’s teachers believe to be ‘normal,’ then you could speak with the school’s guidance counselor about having your child assessed for free.

Exercises You Can Do at Home

Once it has been determined that your child needs therapy, the school may provide one-on-one time with the district’s speech therapist. Severe problems may be referred to private therapists, but even then, free help is often available for parents without the financial means to pay for sessions. These are usually provided through government healthcare programs like Medicaid if you qualify, but the point is that free therapy is available if necessary. You can also use the recommended at-home exercises to help a stuttering child, which your child’s therapist can provide for you or you can find them online through the link mentioned above.

Free Apps for Mobile Devices

Then there are a number of free speech therapy apps you can download online, some of which are also listed on the abovementioned site. Many of those are developed with children in mind and, as such, are just as fun and entertaining as they are therapeutic. You can also find speech therapy apps that involve using music and these seem to be the ones most kids favor the most. It is suggested that you download more than a few because sometimes kids tire easily with apps, and even games lose allure if played too much and too often. That being said, there may be that one app that your child likes best and that is perhaps the one you should work with most often and as a ‘reward’ for doing well in other apps you are using.
With more than three million adults suffering from stammering from mild to severe, you should know that this is a condition that is common, but not of epidemic proportions. Medical science is still trying to determine why some people have a tendency to stammer while others never seem to have any problems whatsoever. Just keep working with your child in a fun and non-threatening way and these free exercises should help reduce or alleviate the problem altogether.

Here’s Why Some Freebies Aren’t Worth Bothering With

Everyone likes to get something for nothing, right? However, there are some products on the market that really aren’t worth sending for, even if you think you are getting something great in a giveaway. Yes, there are promotional products out there that you really might want to try, but there are also those that are simply a waste of your valuable time. Here’s a quick look at some things to think about before falling into the ‘freebie trap.’

Hidden Fees to Be Aware Of

Any company is legally entitled to offer giveaways, but they are also helped by strict laws on how they offer those freebies. If there is a fee involved, they must tell you about those fees by law. Unfortunately, some slide by with a disclaimer or listing of the fees by placing them in some obscure location on a website or printed mailer. This is a rather sticky area, and one which might be contested, if they don’t follow the government’s guidelines to the letter of the law. Is it worth your time fighting those fees? Probably not, so make sure to look over the stipulations before submitting your request for any freebie whatsoever. Don’t forget, some freebies come with an unwanted automatic renewal after the ‘trial period,’ so look for that as well!

Health Hazards They Won’t Tell You About

When it comes to cleaning supplies, these can be more hazardous to your health than you can imagine. For example, did you know that one study conducted over a 20-year period found that most household cleaners in aerosol format can be more hazardous to your health than a pack of cigarettes a day? If you are looking for cleaning supplies for your home, check out the study before sending for that giveaway. Students in respiratory therapist schools in Cleveland Ohio are being advised that these are the chemicals they should be warning their clients about, especially if they are going to be involved in home health respiratory therapy.

Cost Prohibitive When Buying

Then there are those products which simply cost much more than they are worth. Usually, by the time you factor in the cost of shipping, you will find that you can get them much cheaper when shopping locally. However, sites like Amazon Prime may offer free shipping on products “eligible for Prime”, but how much would that product cost if purchased locally? Sometimes, those merchants raise the rate to cover the cost of shipping, even if it’s a Prime eligible product, so do some comparison shopping before taking advantage of a giveaway intended to get you hooked.
Finally, you will want to research several customer reviews prior to wasting your time requesting a freebie. Sometimes you will find that those products are faulty and this is one of the reasons why manufacturers or distributors are offering them for free. Other times they are first generation products which have new updated technology and when you’ve tried your freebie, the only thing left to order is a newer version at much greater cost. These are just some of the examples of why those giveaways might not be worth it. It’s up to you to determine which are worth your time and effort and which should be ignored for your own sanity.
