Why is man dumb?
Inability to speak is a serious diagnosis, which, however, is successfully overcome in some cases.
In this article we will talk about the main reasons why a person is dumb, and also about the types of dumbness.
The main causes of dumbness
Basically, dumbness is a consequence of deafness. So, if a child was born deaf, he never heard people's speech, so he can not reproduce it; Such an option of dumbness is congenital and is called a deaf-mute.
There are also cases of acquired deaf mute. In the event that a person loses hearing at an early age, when the vocabulary is still small (or absent), over time the ability to speak is lost.
Problems with the psyche
Some psychological diseases,shocks caused by tragic events in life, stress and stress can lead to dumbness. Nemota, which is a symptom of a psychomotor disorder, is called "mutism" and is treated with the disinhibition method.
Deviations in development
The cause of dumbness can be a deep mental retardation in development (oligophrenia), that is, deviations in the development of intelligence. In children, dumbness can be caused by autism.
Dysfunction of the brain
Another reason for dumbness (with normal hearing andlevel of intelligence) is a violation of the brain due to birth trauma or inadequate development of the brain centers responsible for speech. This kind of dumbness is called alalia. Under alalia, a person can, as you understand, never understand a speech addressed to him, but he is not able to speak.
In addition, a person may lose the ability tospeech in adulthood due to craniocerebral trauma, inflammatory processes, stroke or tumor. Also, a person can be dumb because of the pathologies of the vocal cords, which are responsible for the formation of the voice.
