Help us generate more knowledge, train more students, and serve more people worldwide.


The Arthur M. Blank Center for Stuttering Education and Research, comprised of the Michael and Tami Lang Stuttering Institute, the Dealey Family Foundation Stuttering Clinic, and the Dr. Jennifer and Emanuel Bodner Developmental Stuttering Laboratory, is changing the world for people who stutter by 1) providing access to quality care at no cost to children, teens, and adults who stutter worldwide, 2) fostering a global pipeline of speech-language pathologists and researchers who specialize in stuttering through our extensive training of undergraduate students, graduate students and practicing clinicians, and 3) generating new knowledge about the nature of stuttering and best practices for treatment.
