Welcome to START.
The Stuttering Treatment and Research Trust (START) is the only organisation in New Zealand that provides specialist 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 treatment that you need. That is why we offer appointments in Greenlane and Albany, and via video conferencing for
those who live outside of Auckland.
Groups & courses
Our specially developed courses combine therapy with an opportunity to meet others who
stutter, in a relaxed and supportive environment. We have group sessions for children, teens and adults.
Would you prefer to work with someone who has faced the same struggles as you? START is proud to offer our world-first mentoring programme where we find a mentor who is right for you.
