Hi Tom , I am Arya Kumar Sinha. I would like to contradict the view that is propagated in your web-site like stammering is not curable. My view is that : stammering is totally curable. I will place good arguments in favor of it. I am from India. At one point , I used to stammer severely with block/repeat on "A" "E" "I" "M" O" "U" "P" "D" "R" "L". From there , today i have achieved total fluency. I can speak fast like any normal speaker , without a single block on any letter. Why stammering is curable : The argument is : 1) Consider flipping of coin . P(head) = P(tail) =1/2. Similarly if we assume 2 states of stammering , then P(cure)=P(non-cure)= 1/2. So I rule out your 1st argument that stammering is not curable, by showing that there is equal possibility of both the cure/non-cure states. Its perfectly up to you to choose one. Both of these states exist in nature. 2) A computer i.e the logical processing area of a computer is composed of 3 parts. 1) Software 2) Operating system 3) Hardware. A programming error/bug appears if there is malfunction/error in the software part or OS or hardware. If in case of stammering there was a hardware error . then the individual would face it , while singing or while talking to himself. But in such cases a stammerer finds himself totally fluent thereby signalling that there is
no hardware error. The error is software part , the way we program our speech muscles. Due to repetitive erroneous programming , the stuttering problem look today as a very awkward problem. At t=0 . We initially programmed it wrongly , at t=1 , we get wrong output , which is the next wrong input at t=3. etc. The process continues , until we take the right initiative to correct the speech algorithm Under correct algorithm , problem just vanishes out. 3) By the laws of physics .Many-worlds interpretation , which successfully explained , loopholes of quantum physics , and today Dr. Stephen Hawking is a great supporter of this theory. States in plain worlds , Cure is a state , if it did not happen to you at any point of time , cure ,a state of things definitely existed. 4) Lastly , we can program our speech muscles and recreate new algorithm . The recent research " Long-term potentiation " . For details , check wikipedia or any other journal. Since by the above arguments , we find the state "cure" of stammering is perfectly true. so I , think , you must not spread the message , that you all have discovered a omnipotent truth that " stammering is not curable. Stammering is curable. I have cured myself in such a level that I have totally forgotten what stammering is all about. If you cast doubt , I can bring at-least 10 such peoples , who can prove themselves before court judges too. So before awarding anyone a crackpot award , think thrice , and see whether there is something wrong in your understanding of stammering. Regards ,

Arya Kumar Sinha believes that stuttering is totally curable.
Arya Kumar Sinha wrote to me that stuttering is curable. Read his email to me. I am not sure about his "By the laws of physics .Many-worlds interpretation , which successfully explained , loopholes of quantum physics , and today Dr. Stephen Hawking is a great supporter of this theory."
