@ms_aria101 Not my words, but the words of the narrator/interviewer of the podcast. Although the exact etiology, or cause, of stuttering is unknown, both genetics & neurophysiology are thought to contribute, alongside many other theories/studies.

Most of us take the ability to speak fluently for granted, but for listener Breeda it has been a lifelong struggle. Breeda is not alone, as stammering is a neurological condition that affects 70 million people worldwide. #stutter #stottern #stammer https://t.co/hGNKD151we

The McGuire Programme takes a holistic approach that treats stuttering not so much as a problem with speech, but more an issue with our experience of communication and how we relate to people and the world around us. We see it as an issue of fear and anxiety, and old patterns and triggers from the past. Changes to those patterns takes time hence the emphasis on ongoing coaching and support.

The technique includes a number of strategies or ‘weapons’ to physically overcome the speech blocks and challenging words. It also teaches an understanding of the physiology and emotional aspects of stuttering and encourages self-acceptance as a person who stutters that is working hard to become an effective communicator.
