Our team of speech pathologists at Voice Science are very passionate about assisting in stuttering therapy in Melbourne and online. Our clinicians use prolonged speech / smooth speech and the Camperdown method for adult stuttering therapy since research validates these as the most effective approaches for adults.
The first step in starting your stuttering therapy in Melbourne or online is the Diagnostic Stuttering Assessment. This involves a thorough assessment into stuttering behaviours present as well as assessment into core communication environments impacted by the presence of stuttering behaviours and even vocal function where required.

Our clinic is based in Collins Street – easy to access and perfect if your are based in the city or working from the city. We are one of the few speech pathology clinics that offers stuttering therapy in Melbourne for adults solely. This makes our clinic the perfect spot if you want an affirming space to do your stuttering therapy sessions. There are no toys, childish pictures, instead you will be met with an edgy, vibrant space and our competent clincians.
We moved to our virtual clinic on Monday the 16th of March, 2020, until further notice.
As such, our team will deliver your appointment online.
Each of us, yourself included, are crossing paths with vulnerable citizens of our communities. At Voice Science, we do not want to fail to react & respond to this critical phase.
Our virtual clinic has been running for 6 years alongside our Collins St site. We have served every continent other than Antartica & Africa! The gear and tech needs no dress rehearsal, all we need is your ongoing trust & faith in our high quality service as always. We will however reach out to you personally, with a video tutorial to orientate you fully for your coming sessions.
My team is valuable and I’ve always wanted a safe and beautiful environment at Voice Science for them, and all of you.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
