Person with a stammer to be continuity announcer for the night on Film 4 Television Channel
As Channel 4's Year of Disability 2016 draws to a close, people with different disabilities will be taking part in various Channel 4 programmes.
One of these will be on the evening of Thursday 22nd of December 2016 on Film 4 when Matt Callard will be the guest continuity announcer between films on the channel.
Matt said that although I have a stammer using the techniques I learned on the Starfish Project enabled me to have a fantastic experience at the studios, and enjoy the opportunity of taking on another challenge and move out my comfort zones even more.

Welcome to the Starfish Project Website
Like many people, who visit our site will have reached a point in their lives where they want to do something about their stammer. You may also have reached that same point of 'enough is enough'. Many people have told us of their frustration with the severe lack of stammering /stuttering therapy facilities within the health service, and their search for decent and effective stammering therapy.
For lots of people, as well as years of trying ineffective therapies, they will have also tried expensive hypnotherapy with either none or very short lived results. For others it has been the disappointment and time wasted with therapies giving false hopes and a promise of stammering cures. Whilst others come to Starfish disillusioned after trying very expensive electronic devices designed to disguise or delay sounds and control stammering.
We welcome you to the site, we do not promise a non-existent cure for stammering, we will not try and hypnotise you, or sell you and ask you to wear any gadget or device. Our aim is to provide decent, effective therapy with free lifetime support to as many people who stammer as possible, without making profit out of your misfortune of having a stammer, stutter. We hope that you find the joy of effortless speech with the Starfish Project.
The Starfish Project has been helped and supported thousands of people who Stammer over the years. The technique taught on our courses has enabled them to gain control of their speech and lives. We are a non-profit making project for training people who Stammer (Stutter) to control and gain confidence over something that has controlled them.
Unfortunately, there is NO CURE for Stammering or Stuttering. However our training is specifically designed to give you the tools and the confidence to control your stammer in the day to day speaking situations that you will encounter.
