2016 RAISE Award: Most Impactful

Austin Speech Labs

Austin Speech Labs was founded by two speech therapists who saw a gap between services covered by medical insurance and what stroke survivors truly need to return to their social and professional lives. They provide a supportive environment for their clients so that they can complete intensive, individualized speech therapy required for optimum stroke recovery. They want to help their clients regain their speech so they can express themselves to their families and loved ones, which Austin Speech Labs considers a basic human need. To support this need, Austin Speech Labs provides individualized intensive speech, language, and cognitive therapy to stroke survivors at a cost of $10 per hour, with over 30 percent of their clients receiving free therapy. Seeking to make the biggest impact possible, Austin Speech Labs has provided over 14,000 hours of intensive speech therapy to over 500 stroke survivors, and educated over 1,000 community members on strokes and neuroplasticity.
