Welcome to START.
The Stuttering Treatment and Research Trust (START) is the only organisation in New Zealand that specialises in providing treatment and support for people of all ages who stutter and their families. With many therapy options available, we have the advice and support that you need.
Find the stuttering treatment that works for you.
Our qualified team of specialist speech language therapists are all members of the New Zealand Speech Therapy Association (NZSTA), providing internationally accepted and effective therapy for clients.
We know that sometimes it can be hard to get access to the right treatment that you need. That’s why we’re proud to offer appointments in Greenlane and Albany, or even via video for those out of Auckland.
Groups & courses
Our specially developed courses combine intensive therapy with an opportunity to meet others who stutter, in a relaxed and supportive environment. We have group sessions for kids, teens and adults.
Would you prefer to work with someone who has faced the same struggles? START is proud to offer our world-first mentoring programme where we find a mentor who's right for you.
