Callier Center for Communication Disorders

The Callier Center for Communication Disorders is recognized around the globe for its efforts to improve the lives of people who suffer from communication disorders. Founded more than half a century ago, the Callier Center continues to grow as a regional and national resource for children and adults with speech, language and hearing disorders.

Our three-part mission of treatment, training and research attacks communication disorders on all fronts. Some 4,000 children and adults benefit each year from our leading-edge clinical care programs ranging from autism spectrum disorder to cochlear implants. We bring together talented scientists and clinicians from several UT Dallas units to invent and assess new technologies and treatments. Our academic programs—ranked among the top 4 percent in the nation—offer broad-based, experience-centered career preparation in a rich clinical environment.

Connecting with the world

With autism spectrum disorder now affecting one in 68 American children, our Callier Autism Center is planning new and expanded facilities that will allow us to serve more individuals with autism in a more effective way. The space will be distinctively designed for treatment, training and research, all aimed at autism spectrum disorder.

The new Callier Communication Enhancement and Technology Research Center will spur innovative interdisciplinary research and collaborative training of students. Developing new communication devices, determining the effectiveness of treatments and technologies, cultivating the worldwide digital sharing of ideas and clinical trials—these are just a few of the forward-thinking items on our agenda as we partner with industry to expedite commercialization of new technologies.

Invest in the future

In addition to support for the Autism Center and the Communication Enhancement Center, we are seeking to endow the executive director’s chair, renovate and expand facilities, and boost the Callier Care Fund, which answers our most pressing needs. These range from patients who cannot afford our clinical programs to students who need financial assistance to faculty researchers who need project start-up funds. With your support, we can seize the opportunities that will shape our future.
