Lauren Henchey, M.A., CCC-SLP
Lauren Henchey, MA, CCC-SLP, is an Assistant Director of Clinical Research at the Arthur M. Blank Center for Stuttering Education and Research. She is a 2019 graduate of the University of Texas at Austin MA program in Communication Sciences and Disorders and completed her Clinical Fellowship at the Blank Center under the mentorship of Elizabeth Hampton, MA, CCC-SLP. Before coming to the field of speech-language pathology, she earned her BA in English from Georgetown University and worked in the community mental health and alternative education fields for 6 years. After her classroom and clinical experience as a graduate student at UT Austin, Lauren jumped at the chance to become a member of the incredibly special community at the Blank Center. Not only does her work help to advance the field of speech-language pathology through clinical training, research, and advocacy, she is so grateful to get to walk alongside the most phenomenal children, teens, and adults on their journeys with stuttering each and every day. In her role at the Blank Center, Lauren implements innovative evaluation and treatment models for individuals who stutter and their families, supports ongoing program development and research efforts, and maintains collaborative relationships within the university, the greater Austin community, and beyond. To her, “Dream. Speak. Live.” is an affirmation of life – a joyous self-permission to live life fully and authentically and, in the process, to inspire others to do the same.
