Poole man attends speech course for stammer

Jodie Whitfield attended a speech course for his stammer

A POOLE carpenter said he used to struggle to introduce himself due to his stammer, but now has a lot more confidence after completing a speech course in Watford.

Jodie Whitfield, 25, of Kitchener Cres, was challenged by the McGuire Programme to phone a local radio station or newspaper to talk about his experience living with a stammer.

Jodie said: “I would always try get someone else to introduce myself for me rather than doing it myself.

“I would try to get someone to order food for me too.”
