American Institute for Stuttering :: Welcome! 2018-01-06T01:57:03+00:00

AIS offers a whole-person approach to the treatment of stuttering.
Services are available in New York City, Atlanta, and Online.

Being called on in class. Walking into a job interview. Introducing yourself at a party. If you’re someone who stutters, situations like these can set off your internal panic button. And as time goes on, you may find yourself holding back in more and more areas of your life. Keeping yourself on the sidelines. Silencing your voice. Believing that you are somehow less of a person because you stutter.

At the American Institute for Stuttering, we’ve made it our mission to break this cycle. You’ll learn to minimize the struggle of your stuttering and speak with greater ease. Most importantly, you’ll discover that stuttering doesn’t have to hold you back in any way. We will help you speak freely. And live fearlessly.

Take a closer look at AIS’ unique treatment model.
