Hello Wildan, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Speech disorders have various types and causes. Some of these speech disorders are acquired as adults, some of them have occurred since the child's development. The following are some of the causes of speech disorders that have been acquired since childhood development:
Speech disorder, where a person cannot pronounce words with the correct sound, for example the pronunciation of a book becomes fuku, balloons become baon, etc.
Fluency problems, such as stuttering or repeating a certain word or two while speaking
Voice disorders, such as hoarseness, voice fluctuating erratically, voice too loud or too small, bindeng, etc.
Speech disorders that occur since the time of child development can occur due to various things, such as disorders of the oral cavity (for example, cleft lip, tongue or other deformities), disorders of the vocal cords, disorders in the brain (for example, in children with cerebral palsy) genetic disorders (in certain genetic syndromes), hearing loss, and others.
Speech disorders can also occur when a person is an adult. In this case, when he was a child, this person could speak properly and correctly, but due to certain conditions in adulthood, speech disorders occurred. The following are some examples of acquired speech disorders:
Apraxia, a motor speech disorder in which a person is unable to translate what his brain is trying to say into words.
Dysarthria, a motor speech disorder in which a person speaks words that are not very clear, speaks too fast or too slow, speaks with different and strange tones, different volumes and so on. Dysarthria can occur due to impaired control of the muscles that aid speech.
Voice disorders, namely the voice becomes hoarse, high pitched, low pitched, bindeng, etc.
Speech disorders that are acquired as an adult can be caused by many things, such as stroke, brain tumor, degenerative diseases, injury to the face or oral cavity, tumors in the oral cavity or larynx, nodules on the vocal cords, voice abuse (talking too much, too loudly. ), and so forth.
In your case, it is best to know in advance whether your speech disorder has just been experienced when you were an adult (when you were a child you spoke fine) or if you have experienced it since childhood. You can try to check with an ENT doctor to see if there are any abnormalities in your throat and vocal cords. If you have experienced this speech disorder since childhood, you can also consult a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist (Sp.KFR) to do talk therapy on you.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
