The McGuire Programme, an intensive treatment workshop for people who stutter, will be offered in Toronto, Canada August 10 - 13, 2016. This world-wide programme does not have a lot of Canadian dates so this is a special opportunity.
The McGuire Programme is not run by speech therapists, rather by former participants in a "training camp" style. It is expensive and not usually covered by insurance. It does not use traditional techniques. Many people who stutter have benefited from it, but there are no guarantees. Some people have found it too confrontational and emotionally challenging. People who stutter are advised to research and carefully consider any speech therapy they are thinking of taking.
