Wonderful place filled with wonderful, helpful people.
I have been with AIS for 15 years. I started when I was 7 years old when I was diagnosed with a severe stutter that ranked between 85 and 95% on the severity index for stuttering. I am now the CEO of a medical diagnostics startup and I am consulting on two other healthcare startups which I am only able to do because AIS helped me free my voice and control and live with my stutter. I will forever be grateful.
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 provides you with the tools to feel comfortable and confident in dealing with your stutter. Such an amazing group of clinicians who really understand the mental and physical components of stuttering. Through AIS, I made leaps and bounds in my speaking ability and could not recommend this place more to others who stutter.
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.
After trying traditional speech therapy, we took our son to AIS in Atlanta. Margaret's understanding of all aspects of stuttering, and her ability to connect with our son, has been life-changing for our entire family. The teletherapy option has been a game-changer for us, allowing us to easily have weekly or bi-weekly sessions. If you are looking for stuttering help, skip the other speech programs. This is the help you are looking for!
