I got in contact with a great speech therapist named Trine, and she told both me and my parents, that the type of stutter I had, I would not outgrow with age. 

I always got the best help from my family, Trine, my teachers, and my friends and I will always be thankful for that. 

Already as an 3-year old I understood that, there were some words I didn't could say because of my stutter, and some I could. But at some periods of my childhood, it was easier than others :-)

Ever since, my family and i was to an event at my mom's work, I have had a stutter. I was 3 years old. No one knows if that happened to me for the event, and if so, what happened.

The McGuire Programme: a solution to a lifelong struggle to communicate effectively.

The video camera is recording, the room is filled with at least 80 people, among them are veterans from the McGuire Programme, coaches, course organizers and of course all the new students at this Oslo course which started on the 30th of April 2015. All of the people in the room are here for the same reason; they all stutter. 18 new students have committed to face their fears and to take their first step to control their stutter.
