Austin Speech Labs is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides intensive speech and cognitive therapy for stroke survivors. We opened our doors in 2008 and have been growing ever since. We believe that all stroke survivors, regardless of where they are in their recovery or their economic situation, should receive as much therapy as they need to find their words.
Our speech and cognitive therapy pushes back against the traditional belief that stroke survivors only have a small window of time to recover after their stroke. Our data shows that survivors can continue to make progress as long as they are getting the therapy they need.
