Australian Stuttering Research Centre
The Australian Stuttering Research Centre (ASRC) was established in 1996 in the Faculty of Health Sciences (Cumberland Campus), The University of Sydney. The purpose of the ASRC is to establish and disseminate knowledge about stuttering and its treatment.
Research at the ASRC is facilitated by a close collaborative relationship with the Stuttering Unit within the Bankstown Health Service which is a specialist treatment facility located nearby. As well as collaborating in research, the ASRC and the Stuttering Unit along with Macquarie University conduct a program of Continuing Professional Education in Stuttering.
In addition to our premises at Lidcombe, Sydney, the ASRC has staff in three clinical research sites in Australia, all within the public health system: the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, the Lower North Shore Child and Family Health Centre, Sydney, and Sir Charles Gardiner Hospital, Perth.
Additionally, the ASRC has international clinical research collaborations with The Fluency Centre in Montreal, and the Stuttering Treatment and Research Trust in Auckland, New Zealand.
The ASRC also has close collaborative links with staff in speech pathology professional preparation programs in Australia, including the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Faculty of Health Sciences, The University of Sydney, Macquarie University, University of Newcastle, La Trobe University, Charles Sturt University and the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute.
