💫 Today's Tip 💫
✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
Diaphragmatic breathing is an important component for good communication. The time to teach it is NOT while someone is struggling to speak, which makes talking more difficult. It can be taught in speech therapy as a tool to manage stuttering and practiced throughout the day. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
