Watch Mushy Overcome His Stammer In Front Of His Class and Teachers

Using The King’s Speech  as inspiration, Mr. Burton worked with Musharaf Asghar to overcome his stammer to get to a place where he would be able to speak in front of people.

In his own words:
I’m really happy and proud to be on telly as I hope it gives other people with a stammer the confidence to have a go at public speaking. My speech is getting better every week. Everyone at college gives me time, but I’m getting quicker anyway so they don’t miss their bus while they are listening to me. I still won’t be applying for any call-centre jobs yet though.

    This episode of Educating Yorkshire was so emotional!!! It was on in England a couple of weeks ago and I was nearly in tears!! Mr Burton is an absolute hero.
