Through a variety of opportunities, students and professionals are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to independently investigate the nature and best practices for stuttering, as well as to competently assess and treat persons who stutter, of all ages.
The true impact of my training with Dr. Byrd can’t be put into words. To be welcomed and mentored within community that is dedicated to service of all people is a constant source of inspiration.
As a person who stutters, my clinical training and research support experience with the Blank Center provided me with the insight into all that I felt I needed and all that I wanted to give to other people who stutter. My undergraduate and graduate experience has allowed me to gain the confidence and skills to pursue my dreams.
The Blank Center teaches us to be confident in our speech, and we learn not to hate ourselves because of it, and we learn to get stronger.
As a graduate student from Belgium, I had the chance of a lifetime to study with Dr. Byrd. The lessons I gained from the Blank Center profoundly impacted both my professional and personal life. I have since specialized in stuttering and supported programming in Ireland and in Belgium, and hope to one day establish a satellite center in my home country as all persons all around the world are in need of this life-changing CARE.
Work with our leading team of expert clinicians and researchers, learn from the lived experiences of our diverse participants, and gain invaluable skills to integrate into your practice and career.
