No one size fits all for stutterers
In reference to your article “Man who beat stutter helps others do the same” about Lee Lovett really struck a chord with me. While I have had much success with traditional speech therapy as an adult, maybe his methods are the extra unconventional tricks I need to take my speech to a higher level. It sounds intriguing.
However, it should be noted while Mr Lovett and some others have had success with his method, there is no “one size fits all” for stuttering therapies. Just like a diet, what may work for one person may not work for another. In my life, I had four or five different speech therapies before I started a successful one in my early forties.
Over the years I have recommended to people an international directory of speech therapists on the website of the non-profit Stuttering Foundation (www.StutteringHelp.org), a site that also gives out good advice on what to look for in a speech therapy in addition to many other free resources.
I am setting aside a couple of hours this weekend to start reading up on Lee Lovett and his method to stop stuttering. I am both excited and intrigued. He should be commended for all of the volunteer hours he puts into helping people who stammer.
