The Callier Center for Communication Disorders celebrates 60 years of caring for patients with hearing loss or communication disorders. In 1950, Lena Callier, who suffered from profound hearing loss, made a commitment to help others like her. She established a trust with the purpose of alleviating the effects of hearing loss, as well as speech and language disorders. After her death in 1957, the trust from Lena Callier’s estate was used to establish the Callier Hearing and Speech Center, which was incorporated as a non-profit, community-based institution in 1963. Sixty years later, the Callier Center for Communication Disorders has grown into the foremost speech, language and hearing resource for North Texas, and it is one of the most renowned such centers in the nation.

Throughout the years, the Callier Center has remained committed to its three-part mission of providing outstanding leading-edge clinical services, conducting meaningful and innovative basic and applied research into new treatments and technologies and training the next generation of caring clinical providers. 

Mission

We ask that you “Care with Callier” and donate to patients in need. The Callier Center believes everyone deserves “to hear and to be heard, to understand and be understood.” Patients receive treatment and therapy that improve their abilities to communicate and connect, benefiting their family relationships and overall future. Patients are never turned away because of a lack of insurance or financial need. They can receive Callier’s leading-edge treatment and therapy because of the generosity of donors.
