Theories describing stuttering as an emotionally-based problem have been abundant for nearly half a century, despite a lack of scientific evidence supporting those theories. In addition, therapy programs developed from such theories have been unreliable in providing treatment for stuttering.

More recently, research devoted to the physical aspects of stuttered speech has evolved into an effective, as well as efficient, means of treating the problem. Through the use of computer analysis, speech spectography, additional techniques, a succession of essential - though minute - elements of speech movement has been observed which, without difficulty, can take the place of the distorted speech gestures of stuttering.

At the Precision Fluency Shaping Program, stuttering is treated as a behavioral problem, and not perceived as the consequence of a complex emotional disorder. The accurate redevelopment of the physical properties of speech compromises a valuable approach to a perplexing, long-standing affliction.
