  • State Assistance Programs. Did you know there are state programs that help people with disabilities get the assistance they need to find employment? If you are a person who stutters, programs like these could help fund your therapy. States with Vocational Rehabilitation programs provide funding for therapy at AIS – and we are an active vendor in many states.
 In New York, this program is called ACCES-VR (Adult Career and Continuing Education Services – Vocational Rehabilitation). If you are seeking services at our Atlanta, GA office, the Georgia program is called GVRA (Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency). If you want to learn more about how this works or want us to help guide you through the process, just reach out
