Uncontrollable Speech Volumn

For a very long time (And still now) on occation I find that I cannot control the volumn in my voice-most of the time I seem to shout out my sentence, I don't actually know I've actually literally shouted unless someone tells me. On rarer occations it goes very quiet (It happened during a Maths lesson once, I said my answer and people were looking at me strangly-and then the teacher said "lost your voice did we?" I didn't know I had whispered it! Very embarrassing :oops:)
I decided to go digging around the old internet and found that this is indeed linked to Dyspraxia-but does anyone here have the same problem and what do you do to control it?

I think I occasionally have this problem. I sometimes find I suddenly say things very loudly/in the library with friends when I was a college I would talk too loudly without realising it. On the whispering, I only unconsciously do that if others are have lost their voice and are whispering, even thought there's no need for me to whisper.

I didn't know that was linked to Dyspraxia.

My family and friends always joke that I was born with no volume control! I get told I shout all the time!

When my parents kept telling me on a daily basis that my voice gets too loud, I knew it was something-they thought I was deaf or something!
But seeing as dyspraxia is linked to speech I decided to look it up-and found it was linked.

My parents still have a go at me for it and they say I CAN control it, but I can't!
