About Stuttering and HCRI
Stuttering affects 66 million people worldwide. The disorder impedes educational achievement, erodes social confidence, and limits career opportunities. Moreover, traditional therapies rarely deliver lasting fluency. Yet, non-profit HCRI’s pioneering work and research with thousands of cases led to the creation of a unique behavioral treatment program that helps people who stutter achieve fluent speech for the long term.
HCRI was founded in Roanoke by Ronald L Webster, Ph.D. in 1972 to investigate stuttering through scientific discovery and treatment innovation. HCRI is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization. The Institute is located at 7851 Enon Drive, Roanoke, Va. 24019. HCRI clinicians have helped people who stutter from 50 countries.
