Are there certain things to keep in mind that can help my speech problems caused by multiple sclerosis?

ANSWER

There are other ways to manage speech problems:

  • Don’t feel rushed or pressured when trying to talk. If you feel comfortable, it may help to let the other person know you have a speech problem.
  • Talk face-to-face when possible. Facial expressions and gestures can help you get your point across.
  • If a conversation goes on too long, take a break.
  • Try to relax. A positive attitude might put you and the other person at ease so you won’t feel anxious about understanding each other.
