Logoneurosis (speech neurosis) is a form of stuttering that appears as a symptom of neurosis, can develop as a reaction to a strong stress factor.
Stuttering with logoneurosis does not appear voluntarily, but only in stressful situations. Any emotional stress, quarrel, all kinds of strong positive or negative emotions can be a triggering factor. Since logoneurosis is primarily a neurological condition, the corresponding symptoms can be observed. Muscle tics, involuntary grimaces, blinking, convulsions join the stuttering. Patients complain of shortness of breath, a feeling of suffocation.
If this condition develops in children or adolescents, it can lead to complexes or more serious psychological disorders. Children begin to deliberately avoid situations that can lead to the formation of a seizure. The child becomes more withdrawn, reluctant to make contact. In some cases, this can transform into depression.
In our Center for Computer Biofeedback of the DMC Clinic, a qualified speech therapist conducts effective treatment using a computer complex for speech correction using biofeedback. The method of computer biofeedback in combination with traditional corrective measures can be successfully used in speech therapy and phoniatric practice for the development, improvement, and correction of phonation respiration, speech, and communication. Its expediency and effectiveness in the prevention of speech disorders, as well as in the improvement of the body as a whole, and to increase the level of human adaptation to the surrounding social and ecological environment have been revealed. The computer biocontrol method optimizes the rehabilitation process, increases the efficiency and effectiveness of work, and helps to improve the quality of life.
