Thoughts On Final Episode Of Educating Yorkshire

October 25, 2013

I followed the series through to the end, and have just seen the final episode.

It followed Musharraf, a Year 11 student with a severe stammer.

He was often allowed to type his thoughts as his speech is painstakingly slow. This took me back to my own high school days, when I was allowed to type my work because my handwriting is not easily readable.

We watched his favourite teacher prepare him for the hardest test in a young stammerer’s life- the GCSE English Speaking exam.

With a little help from a pair of headphones and some music, results day brought a miracle for Musharraf.

So, if you are currently teaching or treating someone with a stammer, please, watch this.
