Celebrating 40 Years of Service

The 2012 Alumni reunion marks HCRI's 40th year of service. In 1972, HCRI revolutionized the concept of stuttering therapy by identifying and treating the disorder as a physically based condition.
Through the years, the Institute's treatment approach has been continually reaffirmed through research. In tandem, HCRI's therapy program has been continually enhanced based on new discoveries and experience working with thousands of stuttering cases.

"While this 40-year milestone is reason to pause and celebrate, we continue to push forward to champion the cause for enhanced therapy outcomes and accessibility," said HCRI President Ronald L. Webster, Ph.D. 

"We encourage our alumni to come to the 2012 Alumni Reunion and share this exciting time in our institute's history and development," Webster added.
