We took our son to the American Institute for Stuttering at the age of 3 after not being happy with the therapy he was receiving locally. For years we commuted to the city for therapy. As my son got older and did not have the time to commute regularly, we did therapy sessions via Skype. I would not go anywhere else.

There are rare people in your life who you meet for the first time and know they will change your life. I have been stuttering for more than 20 years now and Carl is the first therapist who actually understood my stuttering even better than I did. It has resulted in increased confidence for me in all kinds of situations be it social or professional and increased fluency has come as an unexpected byproduct. Not to mention, the financial support they gave me given my current financial status as a grad student.

AIS has helped me overcome my stuttering with a truly holistic approach to treatment and to communicate effectively with anyone I want to, and I have since had the confidence and ability to join the professional workforce and start a family.
