Why 2021 Was Good For PWS

Almost 50 of our PWS-students became PWSS (people who stopped stuttering) this past year.  It’s such a treat to reflect on what some have written to us.  Let’s recap a few:             An attorney wrote, “Your program saved my life.  I really believe that even though it may take hundreds of years, in the future, […]


The Science of Stuttering & The Lovett Method

I am the bearer of good news:  The “science” of stuttering does not support the long-held dogma that stuttering and semi-muteness are “incurable” or need to be “accepted”.  In point of fact, science supports the conclusion that stuttering and muteness can be converted into enjoyable fluency.          Throughout history, there has been a reluctance to […]


Stuttering Became My Biggest Blessing

My name is Lee Lovett. I am not a doctor, but I consider myself an expert of sorts on stuttering, because I battled it for some 25 years, during my teens, 20s and 30s. I have read countless books on the subject and I wrote a book about the methods that I use to control […]


Progression to Fluency

The Steps of Fluency.   Many PWS become so irritated with themselves for not becoming fluent in all areas and situations at one time.  They should not allow themselves to become discouraged.  Any and all improvements are a sign that complete fluency CAN be theirs, IF they will keep at it.  Why is this true?  Few […]


Is Stuttering Hereditary?

Is stuttering genetic? Although this seems like a straightforward question, the answer is not clear cut. Many experts believe that stuttering has genetic origins, but a substantial number disagree.  WSSA’s Certified Speech Coaches have worked with hundreds of people who stutter (PWS), and less than 20% of them had ANY other stutterers in their family-history.  […]


Helping the Medical Community Understand Stuttering

Unfortunately, the medical community does not understand stuttering.  After helping a couple hundred PWS stop stuttering, I have been criticized and called a “charlatan”, “despicable liar”, etc., because I have “no medical training” and deigned to use the word “cure” in the title to my book. “Stuttering is an incurable disease”, or so some in […]


Using Neuroscience To Stop Stuttering

Neuroplasticity exploded on the medical scene circa 2000, asserts that the brain is like plastic, and its performance can be changed (inorganically and organically) as long as we live. In its simplest terms, desired changes can be effected by visualizing/seeing and hearing the desired changes in action. As “The brain knows what to do,” we […]


Helping Children Stop Stuttering

To help our children, we need to understand the origin of stuttering. Virtually all humans are overly concerned with the opinions of others. This goes back to primitive mankind’s life in the wilderness, where every encounter with a stranger posed a potential life-and-death threat and stimulated what the medical world calls the “fear-fight-flight” syndrome, which […]


Why Do I Keep Relapsing Into Stuttering?

Many people who stutter (PWS) reduce or even stop all stuttering (by finding a few methods that work) but relapse back into stuttering within a few weeks or months after stopping.  Why do they keep relapsing? Most of us who beat stuttering PERMANENTLY use MANY different methods to beat it, not just one or a […]


Speech Is Perception

Everything is as we see it,the way that we choose to see it,nothing more, nothing less. Do we see the donut or the hole?  Do we see the glass half-empty or half-full?  Choose the donut and the glass half-full every time, and we are well on the way to a happy life.  Choose the negatives, […]
