About the Support Group
How did it all begin?
Terrence Murgallis, sophomore Speech-Language Pathology student, began coming to the Misericordia University Speech-Language and Hearing Clinic for speech therapy when he was in high school. He says it was the first time he had ever spoken to another person who stuttered. He is one of the organizers behind the expansion of the support group. “It is great to be able to talk about my stuttering in an environment where people understand,” Murgallis says. “It gives me peace of mind to know that I am not the only one facing this type of challenge.”
