Michael and Tami Lang Stuttering Institute

The Michael and Tami Lang Stuttering Institute is a leader in stuttering research, provides evaluation and therapy free of charge to children and adults who stutter, and equips students and professionals with knowledge and skills regarding the nature and treatment of stuttering. Our vision is to help persons around the world who stutter to “Dream. Speak. Live”: to pursue their dreams, speak from their hearts, and live their lives to the fullest.

Established in 2014, the Lang Stuttering Institute (LSI) is housed within the Moody College of Communication at The University of Texas at Austin. Read more about LSI from the Founding Director, Dr. Courtney Byrd.
