As a covert stutterer I often tried to hide my stuttering from the world. As a result, I always felt like I was making this huge sacrifice that few people knew about. I thought, if I switch the words around here or don't speak at this time, well then I could preserve my pride and self image. And I was right, but shame, guilt, fear, loneliness, and helplessness became my true companions. The only reward I ever received from this approach was short-term comfort and safety.

Beyond Stuttering Course In Washington DC April 2015

On April 15, 2015 a group of brave people arrived in Washington DC  to do something about their stutter.  Some people were new, some coming back for a refresher, some who have crashed and burned, some coming for a boost and some coming simply to help the new students along their journey to eloquent speech. All of us together makes this programme work.

We don’t promote this as a “cure for stuttering” (which means no time and effort would  be required to hold onto gains).

The McGuire Programme held its annual east coast course in Washington DC from July 16-19, 2014. We had a wide variety of people who stutter who originated from Canada, Saudi Arabia, Macedonia, Russia, India, Trinidad, Peru and the US and to top it off it was organized and instructed by an Irish and English gal.  It was a truly international course.

Next Stuttering Course in the US - Washington DC

The McGuire Programme Beyond Stuttering Couse comes to Washington DC

Do you stutter or do you know someone who does and is looking for help?  The international program that helps stutterers around the world to get control of their stutter is holding it's next US course in Washington DC from July 16-19, 2014.

There is no known cause or cure for stuttering but using our approach many of our members have reached a level of eloquence and control they have not been able to achieve with any other program.
