Making out of the uncomfortable something comfortable - Santiago, Chile

A new course started in Santiago, Chile on Wednesday April the 10th. 15  brave new students (NS) arrived to face our biggest fear, stuttering. In the room there were a lot of emotions from part of the NS and their families. They were all very uncertain of what was going to happen.

Tackling their stutter in Córdoba, Argentina

On Wednesday April the 3rd, a course in Córdoba, Argentina started. 2 new students arrived, both came from Buenos Aires to go Beyond Stuttering, along with 3 graduates to reinforce their process (from Tucumán, Córdoba and Entre Ríos). The NS had their doubts about the programme, but as the sessions passed, they were more satisfied; when they made their first day videos, they felt comfortable being in a room with people who stutter.

Pablo Guillen:

This was my first course and I must say that my experience was extremely satisfying and gratifying, previously I went to many therapies and private language classes, to be able to “cure” my stutter, I put all my effort and dedication to the exercises but I saw no result, but that all changed when I discovered the McGuire programme.

Facing the real world in Bogota, Colombia

We had our second Latin American McGuire course of the year in Bogota, Colombia on the 13th of February, with 5 new brave students; 4 men with an overt stutter, and 1 woman with an overt stutter as well.. Ages from 15 years to 22 years.


Starting the year with the right foot

Tension in the body, feeling of guilt, ashamed of stuttering and fear to express are characteristics that a person with this condition has. There’s days in which speaking is an odyssey, it becomes something complicated. A stutter has no cure, only control, there’s not much information on the topic.

Approximately 73 million people in the world stutter, out of 4 men, 1 women has it. It is necessary to raise awareness for there to be a change and we all have the same opportunities.
