Spring Has Sprung And We Had Fun!

On a glorious sunny day in Newry, Northern Ireland, new students from the Galway course in February came together once again along with coaches and other graduates to share knowledge and support one another. At the refresher day there were 31 members of the Irish McGuire Programme in attendance, comprising of 13 primary coaches, 9 experienced graduates and 9 recent members of the programme.

After only one month on the McGuire Programme the new members showed character and determination in working on their own stutters. The focus of the day was to recap on the techniques that they had practiced on the February course and in doing so dedicating a whole day working on their stutters and supporting each other.

There were a number of presentations on the day from members, focusing on both the physical and psychological aspects of stuttering. We also took the time to have some social interaction activities and a fun session. Smiles radiated throughout the room and the sound of laughter penetrated the walls.

Everyone who attended put in a great effort on the day and left feeling they had achieved something worthwhile. A lot of people travelled from all over Ireland to attend and their effort and determination paid off. They left feeling empowered and ready to tackle new opportunities ahead.

Thanks to all who made the effort to attend and prepared presentations for the day.

Together we are stronger and wiser. For events and courses in 2017 please check the website.
