Courtney T. Byrd Ph.D., CCC-SLP is a Professor, at the Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences at The University of Texas She is also the Founding and Executive Director of the Arthur M Blank Center for Stuttering Education and Research, Dr. Byrd also serves as the Vice President for Research for The Stuttering Foundation and has been an active member of the National Stuttering Association since attending her first meeting over 30 years ago. She has over 100 peer-reviewed publications, and has dedicated her life’s work to advancing understanding of the etiology across culturally and linguistically diverse populations, as well as improving treatment and training practices to better serve people who stutter. Through these efforts, she has developed a distinct approach to treatment that does not target reduction in stuttering, but empowers teens, and adults worldwide to learn how to speak confidently, communicate effectively, and advocate meaningfully so that stuttering never stops them from living their lives to the fullest (Camp Dream. Speak. Live. and Targeting Communication Excellence).
