Callier Center for Communication Disorders Executive Director Dr. Tom Campbell admitted that he was excited today at the Callier Cares Luncheon at the Dallas Country Club. And he had a couple of good reason for the excitement.
He announced that the two wings at the Callier Center on the UT Dallas Campus had been named in honor of people and organizations that have been important to Callier.
According to Tom, “The clinical wing in which audiology services are administered, as well as adult speech and language services, will be named ‘The Altshuler Wing.’ Ruth and Ken (Altshuler) have been instrumental to the growth of the Callier Center, not only in its physical expansion, but also in its identity in the community.”
Located on the other side of the lobby, the second wing where “speech-language therapy programs and individual services are conducted for children will be named ‘The Meadows Foundation Wing.’” One of the first grants provided by The Meadows Foundation was made to the Pilot Institute for the Deaf, which eventually became the Callier Center for Communication Disorders. Over the years, The Foundation “has furthered the Callier Center’s mission of treatment, training and research through its support of Callier’s expansion in Dallas and on the UT Dallas campus.”
