BOOKS: Included are Lee’s six speech-related books. Based on Amazon prices, the value of these books is $99 (see fn. 1).
COURSES: WSSA provides four courses with an aggregate 53 lectures/lessons. Using the Univ. of Maryland tuition-costs, there are 15 lectures/lessons per course, per semester, for which IN-STATE students pay $78/lecture (see fn. 2). At in-state college-costs, that is a $4,134 value. (At out-of-state tuition rates, it would cost $232/lesson or $12,229 total value.)
VIDEO LIBRARY OF INSTRUCTIVE COACHING-SESSIONS & TIPS: WSSA also provides access to 2,000+ full length coaching videos, by Coach Lee and the other WSSA Certified Speech Coaches (CSC’s), along with 200+ short Tips videos. New videos are added to the library weekly. Each of these sessions is a marvelous “teacher” in and of itself. Subscribers can access these videos 24/7 and study and search them by topic (reading aloud, self-hypnosis, auto suggestion, Crutches 1, 2, 3, etc., First Feared Words, Middle Words, blocks, repeats, and even by the first name of the student being coached; they are “My favorite TV show,” as one student called them. Nowhere else can anything like this be found. WSSA believes that each of these coaching session is worth as much as one college-lecture, $78 (see fn. 2) which would exceed $100,000 (see fn. 3). Nowhere else can instructive teaching-sessions by ex-stutterers be found — at any price.
PRIVATE COACHING: WSSA Patron members have access to private speech coaching by ex-stutterers, who have trained and been certified as speech coaches (CSC’s), at substantially reduced pricing to non-members. Most speech therapists have never stuttered or still stutter and typically charge $100-300/hour, perhaps averaging $200/hour. WSSA charges the modest sum of $60 for one session declining to $50 for ten sessions, the latter being 75% less or $150/session less than average therapist’s charges. Those subs, who are able to take advantage of this service and do so, will save many times the cost of their WSSA membership.
CAREERS IN SPEECH COACHING: Only WSSA offers a course to train PWSS (people who have stopped stuttering using WSSA’s program) to become Certified Speech Coaches for WSSA and, therefore, have the possibility of a part time or full-time career as a speech coach for WSSA. (WSSA cannot guarantee that any subscriber-PWSS will earn CSC status or that, even if they do, that there will be any demand for any such subscriber’s coaching services, although WSSA believes that there will be a substantial demand, when this service becomes widely known. IF so, some subscribers could possibly earn sums far exceeding the costs of WSSA’s program.
SPEECHMASTERS CLUB (SAM): WSSA offers members access to the only speech club, to its knowledge, that tailors its meetings to the special needs of speech sufferers. As they will be offered online, WSSA hopes to offer meetings at a wide variety of times multiple days weekly. WSSA currently intends to record these meetings and put in WSSA’s Video Library, allowing 24/7 viewers by subscribers – unless those participating in the meeting ask the Host not to allow viewing of the meeting by non-attendees. The goal of SAM is to help members teach themselves to love to speak in all venues. SAM hopes to be a feeder-club for Toastmasters (where speakers appear live, at a podium, with a mic and a live audience). Again, SAM is unique in the world and no dollar value can fairly be assigned to it.
CRUTCH PRACTICE GROUPS: WSSA provides opportunities for Patron members to practice their speech with other members of our community in a low-pressure environment. Our “Crutch Practice Groups” are sessions focused on how to use the Crutches to insure we hear fluency in our speech. They are scheduled throughout the week and are organized and hosted by one of our certified speech coaches or a PWSS that has a sound understanding of Crutches. The value of these sessions is similar to that of our courses.
BLOGS, EMAILS, UPDATES: WSSA offers blogs, emails and frequent updates of case histories and other speech-related matters, written by ex-stutterers. Another unique service of inestimable value.
BECOMING PART OF THE WORLD’S ONLY ANTI-STUTTERING COMMUNITY: As best WSSA knows, WSSA and its program offers the only anti-stuttering community on the planet. If you have the courage to be a pioneer, this is the place for you.

 U. of MD. in-State tuition is $10K/43 courses = $2,325/course/2 semesters = $1,163/semester/15 lectures per course per semester = $78. Out-of-State costs are typically three times that amount. Source: Google, Business Insider, Personal Finance, Cost of a Single Course.
