Located at the Faculty of Health Sciences, The University of Sydney, the Australian Stuttering Research Centre was established in 1996 with Professor Mark Onslow as its founding director. Its mission is to conduct research into the nature of stuttering, to conduct clinical trials of stuttering treatments for adults and children, to train future researchers in the field and to support those who stutter and their families.
The Centre has published more than 85 percent of the world’s speech pathology clinical trials for stuttering during the past 10 years, including the only randomised controlled trials of such treatments during that period.
The Centre actively promotes excellence in stuttering treatments worldwide. It has an international focus, with international research collaborations and PhD students from seven countries.
The Australian Stuttering Research Centre is supported by funding from the Faculty of Health Sciences, the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia, the Australia Research Council and generous benefactors.
