About Dr Brenda Carey
Dr Brenda Carey is the founder of this stuttering therapy centre in Melbourne. Brenda completed her PhD after being awarded a scholarship from the Australian Stuttering Research Centre (ASRC), University of Sydney where her research concerned telepractice delivery of the Camperdown Program for Adults who stutter.
She has extensive experience in the Lidcombe Program for preschoolers, having treated over 200 children with this program. She has also treated many adults who stutter with various methods including the Smooth Speech Program, developed at La Trobe University and the Camperdown program, developed at the University of Sydney.

She is an Honorary Associate at the ASRC and a clinical educator at La Trobe University Communication Clinic. In 2014, Brenda was a keynote speaker at the Oxford Dysfluency Conference, and in 2015, at the International Conference on Stuttering in Rome. She has published her research in several international journals, and has trained more than a thousand speech pathologists in Australia, Singapore, Canada, Japan, and most recently, Israel. In June this year Brenda will be presenting a paper at the 3rd International Conference on Stuttering in Rome.
When not engaged in the career she loves, Brenda enjoys spending time with her husband, her three children, her friends and her dog Jazz.
