Research about stuttering is an important part of what we do at START.
Over the years, START has collaborated with a number of national and international organisations including the Australian Stuttering Research Centre (ASRC), University of Sydney, University of Auckland and the New Zealand Coaching and Mentoring Centre (NZCMC). START regularly hosts speech language therapy students in assistant roles at some of our larger group courses.
Below are some of the research projects that the team at START have been involved in, with plenty more to come in the future.
