Overall Success Rate excluding non-respondents.
Many other programs do not include non-respondents in their success rate calculations. If we used this method the above percentage of new McGuire Programme members would have been rated successful.

In 2018, 463 people wanting to overcome their stutter joined our Programme. Of these, 358, or 77%, were verified by our Evaluation Auditors as being successful according to our criteria (https://www.mcguireprogramme.com/en/levels-success) in our most accurate category where non-respondents were rated not-successful. Further, an impressive 97% of people who took advantage of the Programme’s included LIFETIME support for at least 6 months were confirmed successful.

2018 was an exceptional year for the following reasons:

• Our 77% verified/audited success rate in 2018 is second only to 2010s 78% success rate since we improved the Evaluation Audit process in 2004.

• This represents a dramatic improvement from the unacceptable 63% of 2016 and appears to be a result of improved (and more strict) staff training and staff development procedures for coaches.

• Dramatic improvements were recorded in Benelux (went from 56% in 2017 to 80%), Scandinavia (from 64% to 83%), UK North (from 64% to 84%).

An impressive eight Regions achieved success rates of over 80%. These include:

  1. Greece at 100% (RD – Matt Wilton)
  2. India at 95% (RD – Kaushik Valluri)
  3. Australia/NZ at 86% (RD – Denis Wright)
  4. UK North at 84% (RD – Iain Mutch)
  5. Scandinavia at 83% (RD – Daniel Kusk)
