The McGuire Programme has been featured in many television documentaries including the 2019 BAFTA TV nominated ITV documentary “SCHOOL FOR STAMMERERS”.
In 1994, Dave McGuire founded The McGuire Programme, an international self-help membership organization using the same methods that helped him overcome a severe stutter. Called The McGuire Programme, this organization (owned and operated by those who stutter to help others who stutter), runs 3-4 day intensive courses and provides follow-up support throughout the world. This book (3RD EDITION, 2019) is the course manual for all members.
Combining mental strategies with breathing techniques, this book explains The McGuire Programme, a proven technique for long-term improvement in speech and self-confidence for those who suffer from stuttering. Developed through the author’s own struggles, readers learn to deal with their fear of stuttering by using a combination of physical techniques and mental strategies so that they can become better than normally fluent speakers. This 25th anniversary edition has been revised to incorporate the development of the methods of The McGuire Programme.

About the Author
Dave McGuire suffered from a severe stutter that devastated his professional and person life. All attempts to solve this problem through traditional speech therapy failed. Finally, at age 45, he put together several concepts that enabled him to not only conquer his stutter, but to speak well. From this, and much trial and error, he created an organization to help others who stutter that is a world-wide organization called The McGuire Programme. Now living in Santa Barbara, California, Dave's passion is still as strong as it was 25 years ago and his programme continues to develop and grow.
