There are a number of programs and interventions in Australia for people who stutter and their families, details of which for different age groups are provided below. These programs are typically delivered by speech pathologists and/or psychologists, and one, The McGuire Program, is delivered by people who stutter. While there are many speech interventions available for stuttering in Australia and internationally, not all are supported by clinical trials. 

The Australian Speak Easy Association does not promote or recommend any of the programs or interventions described below, but rather our aim is to provide helpful information about them. When seeking help for your own stuttering, or for that of your child, it is important to ask for details about the program being offered in order to make an informed decision.
