About Us

The Institute for Stuttering Treatment and Research (ISTAR) is a self-funded institute of the University of Alberta's Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine. We offer specialized treatment to children, teens and adults who stutter. In addition, we conduct research into stuttering, offer advanced professional training for speech-language pathology students and clinicians, and promote public awareness of stuttering and its treatment.
