Changing the world for people who stutter


The Arthur M. Blank Center for Stuttering Education and Research will be an overarching center to expand the vision and work of Dr. Courtney Byrd, who founded and directs the Michael and Tami Lang Stuttering Institute, the Dr. Jennifer and Emanuel Bodner Developmental Stuttering Laboratory and the Dealey Family Foundation Stuttering Clinic in the Moody College of Communication at The University of Texas at Austin.



Make a gift today to the “Dream. Speak. Live.” Fund:

Every gift makes a difference, and your generosity will help us build a fund to support the Center today – and in the future. Your gift can be made as a one-time gift, or you can set up an ongoing pledge so that your gift continues monthly or annually. Gifts can be made in honor or memory of loved ones.
