The University of Texas at Austin has announced a $3 million gift to establish the Michael and Tami Lang Stuttering Institute, the only specialized research center in the nation to provide free treatment services to children and adults who stutter.
Named for the donors, the center is the first nonprofit institute within a university setting devoted to stuttering intervention and research.
The Lang Institute will provide the latest research-based treatments free of charge to people who stutter from across the country, and advanced clinical training opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students. It will build on the efforts of the existing Jennifer and Emanuel Bodner Developmental Stuttering Laboratory, which has provided treatment to more than 450 clients and advanced clinical training to more than 350 undergraduate and graduate students since its founding in 2006.
