The holiday season – whether it is Diwali or Hanukkah or Christmas is truly magical. 

In the 2018 winter holiday season, 9 individuals – two practising doctors, a high school student, a college student, and five working professionals descended into New Delhi from all over India to beat their stammers. Their only hope was to get the voice they never had.

To help them smash their stammers and support them, graduates, coaches and instructors came from different cities in India and countries overseas – Abu Dhabi, Dubai, France, Sri Lanka, the UK, and the USA.

The new students diligently learned about the physical and psychological aspects of stammering and how to attack their stammers using different weapons to get better control of their speech. Each one of them stayed true to their promise, worked hard and followed directions. The result of their hard work and perseverance was obvious.

One of the recent graduates commented:

The McGuire Programme’s way of life and its war mentality approach to stuttering will benefit any PWS in all walks of life.

Another recent graduate said:

This is the only Programme on the planet with a holistic view on stammering and ultimate instructors and coaches.

A returning graduate commented:

The McGuire Programme is magical and life changing. It’s more than a speech improvement program.

It was very rewarding to hear this. This is what the McGuire Programme is all about. McGuire is the #1 Programme in the world that empowers PWS to take control of their speech and help them achieve a better quality of life. There is no other Programme out there that brings PWS together the way the MGP does!
