  Abstract 

Purpose:
Speech development is a critical barometer of both cognitive and emotional development. Language development occurs most rapidly between 2 to 5 years of age. During this period of learning of speech, usually child begins repetition of consonants, often followed by repetition of words. If this condition continues then child suffers from disability of speech. Modern literature classifies stuttering as a dysfluency type of speech disorder &it can lead into disability in later ages. The present study was aimed to see the efficacy of Vakshuddhikara Churna in Management of Stuttering.
Method:
30 children belonging to 5 to 12 years of age suffering from Stuttering were selected randomly. Vakshuddhikara Churna in the dose of 2 gms is applied over tongue with Madhuin morning and night for 2 months. Follow up was taken in interval of 15 days. Assessment is made by Screening, Speech Sampling and improvement in clinical features. The Stuttering Severity Index (SSI) was considered for assessment.
Result:
Assessment was done before and after the treatment using statistical tests on different parameters. During the study it was found that Repetition and Prolongation were the two major symptoms along with Silent Pauses. Vakshuddhikara Churna provided significant relief in the stuttering severity Index (37.14%), in reciting the days of week (37.80%), counting numbers (46.20%), monosyllables (50%), bisyllables (70%), prolongations (42.045), repetition (43.34%), hesitation (38.13%), pause (39.87%) and hard contacts (43.73%)
Conclusion:
Vakshuddhikara Churna provided significant relief in the main Assessment i.eStuttering Severity Index. Also provided significant relief in the symptoms of Stuttering such as Prolongations, Repetition and Hesitation
