Over the years the Starfish Project has been chosen to feature in numerous TV stammering documentaries and items on TV news about stammering. Whilst hundreds of people saw these films about stammering and stammering therapy available from the Starfish Project and decided to come on a Starfish Project course to learn how to control stammering, we thought it was important for others who may have missed these films originally to see them.
We hope that watching these films will give people who stammer hope and information that there is an alternative.
Barry came on his first Starfish course nearly 19 years ago and has never looked back.

Following the numerous national newspaper, magazine, radio and television articles, reporting successful training in stammering control available from the Starfish Project, we were requested by a large number of parents to start courses for young people who stammer. These parents were all very concerned about the lack of speech therapy facilities, for their children, in their own home areas within the health service.
Beat It - Part 1
There have been quite a few occasions recently when people who I know, have asked me, Steve how have you gained this control over your stammer?
After living with a severe stammer for 20 years and actually finding a way in which I can control it, is a dream come true, When talking to these people, using Technique I know all they are thinking about is why I am not moving like I used to. I think most people are too embarrassed to ask me so I usually make a point of saying it for them! (Explaining all about the Starfish Project).
A little time after his first Starfish course Jack Heal-Turner decided to speak about his story of stammering and finding help to control his stammer from The Starfish Project. We are so proud of Jack, the courage he showed in doing this and all he has achieved since. Please take the time to read his mum's introduction and watch this incredible piece of film.

The non profit making Starfish Project provides an effective, sustainable and affordable solution to stammering, with free lifetime support.
You will see featured in these films the compassionate and caring one-to-one training given by recovering stammerers. A chance to witness these recovering stammerers helping new people to learn the Starfish technique, that they themselves use, to control stammering that once controlled them.
We hope that these films not only give inspiration to stammerers, but also help improve public awareness of stammering, stuttering and give a greater understanding of the problem.
