He is clear with his ideas, but while having conversations he takes a long breath in middle.. As a mother I m worried about his speech. what to do.

thanks for replying Monika! u could try talking to him at a slow speed and avoid telling him to slow down again and again as that would affect his self confidence. avoid asking too many questions. if his speech is unclear , just repeat the same sentence slowly and correctly . he could try breathing excercises​ which would help him control his breath consciously and slow down with practice.. also he could take music lessons where he needs to wait for his turn and slow down according to the rhythm. try playing a game with him where he needs to speak once u finish such as Chinese whisper or dumb charades etc. tell him politely "baby mama can't match your speed , so please slow down baby. I love listening to u when u talk softly and slowly". praise him when he slows down but never scold for being fast . hope this will be of help to u!

no before when he started talking his speech was clear. when he started school since then he is doing like this .he speaks in front of others also like that only. he speaks too fast as if he is in a hurry to finish his conversation.

hi Monika ! other than taking long breaths , is his speech clear? does he speak too fast or too slow?has his speech been like this since the time he has learnt to talk or it's been a recent change? when does he do that more, always or when he has to speak in front of friends/strangers/ class?
