The Callier Center for Communication Disorders

The Callier Center for Communication Disorders was first organized in 1964 as a private foundation called the Callier Hearing and Speech Center.  It was intended to serve as an integrated research and treatment center concerned with speech production, audition and related sensory brain and behavioral disorders, bringing together medical and research leadership to work hand-in-hand with direct service personnel (audiologists, speech pathologists, teachers of the hearing impaired, psychologists and social workers).  

On September 1, 1975, UTD acquired the Callier Center for Communication Disorders.  Located at the corner of Inwood Road and Medical Center Drive in Dallas, the Center is across the street from St. Paul Hospital and near Parkland Hospital and UT Southwestern Medical School.  The Center offers psychological services to children and adults with hearing, speech, or language disorders; speech and language services that include diagnostic evaluations and therapy programs; conducts a preschool for children with hearing loss; dispenses hearing aids and provides professional education to students in audiology and hearing science.   

The Callier Center Richardson Campus was opened in September 2003.  This new 23,500 square foot facility, which services the North Dallas/ Richardson/ Plano area, is located near the intersection of Floyd Road and Synergy Park Boulevard on the UTD campus. 

 

The Center for BrainHealth

The Center for Brain Health, founded in 1999, is located in the Frances and Mildred Goad Building on 2200 West Mockingbird Lane in Dallas. This research center is dedicated to understanding the brain’s ability to restore or protect healthy brain function, to protecting the brain from unnecessary mental decline and to healing the brain through treatments that regenerate brain function.

 

The Center for Children and Families

The Center for Children and Families, housed in BBS’ facilities on main campus, is focused on all aspects of child development from birth through adolescence. The center promotes optimal child development by enhancing research, practice and outreach. CCF offers an array of clinical and community outreach activities, organized around three initiatives: parenting healthy families, strengthening interpersonal relationships and enhancing thinking and learning.

 

The Center for Vital Longevity

The Center for Vital Longevity, a UT Dallas research facility of BBS in downtown Dallas, is focused on understanding and expanding the capacity of the aging mind. Center researchers use cutting edge brain imaging technologies and advances in cognitive science to understand (a) how the brain changes from young to old adulthood; (b) the consequences of neural aging for everyday function; and (c) what interventions show promise for slowing cognitive aging
