At the American Institute for Stuttering (AIS) clients discover a place where they know they are understood and supported — a place where they can free their voice.

Parents Speak
What parents have to say about stuttering therapy at AIS.
Working with AIS was a life-changing experience for me that I would recommend to anyone that feels held back by having a stutter. With their support, I was able to move past the constant fear of stuttering, and find confidence in what I have to say. Thank you to Chaya and the entire AIS team!

I have been a client of AIS for a little over two years now and it is honestly one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. As a lifelong stutterer and someone who just did not respond to typical speech therapy, this place has opened up a whole new world for me, not just for stuttering treatment, but mental health as well. At AIS, they treat the whole person, not just the speech. I am now a part of a community of stutterers I never knew existed. AIS has been incredibly freeing for me. I will never go anywhere else.

AIS has taught me effective managing techniques, as well as the confidence and grace to overcome my fear of stuttering. I highly recommend AIS.

I've had many types of therapy for stuttering. The AIS approach has been the most helpful, by far. Highly, highly recommended.

We had my son evaluated here 11 years ago when he was 3. The evaluation was thorough and the practitioners were gentle, caring, and understanding. They gave us a clear understanding of his case, and equipped us with the knowledge to find appropriate therapy near our home.

I could barely communicate when I started their class, and now I have all the tools I need to speak. What a world of a difference these people made in my life, I highly highly highly recommend this program and could not imagine my life without them. Thank you all so much <3 After I finished their class I did Toastmasters for 6 months and I would definitely recommend that as continual learning for every single person who takes the class, that also made a huge difference for me.
