Since 2016, American Institute for Stuttering has been helping the greater Atlanta area gain access to universally affordable specialized stuttering treatment. We are thrilled to announce our recent partnership with the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation and have renamed the Atlanta facility the Arthur M. Blank Center for Stuttering Therapy.
Having struggled with stuttering throughout his childhood, Arthur M. Blank is a long-time supporter of AIS and was the recipient of the 2011 Changing Lives Freeing Voices Award presented to him by AIS.
Located in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood, just outside of downtown, the Arthur M. Blank Center for Stuttering Therapy provides therapy services and group workshops for adults and children of all ages who stutter.The Arthur M. Blank Center for Stuttering Therapy is led by Senior SLP, Carl Herder.
We ran the very first intensive therapy program in Atlanta in August, 2017. Read about Joshua’s experience and watch Joshua’s speech on the last day of that program:

Hear what our clients have to say:
“I was so tired of the therapy options in the Atlanta area. Carl really gets it, and meeting with him for the first time was like a breath of fresh air. Now my son is learning to take more speaking risks and speak more courageously. We have truly seen him improve as a communicator in a short period of time.”
– Maggie, mother of an Atlanta teen
I was skeptical starting the process with a new therapist all over again, as therapy did not work for my son in the past. But after talking with Carl on the phone, I was optimistic that trying a new, progressive therapy technique could perhaps work for my son, and at the worst, would not do any harm. From the moment we met Carl until our last day with him, he was warm, encouraging, knowledgeable, and most importantly, helpful. He helped us better understand stuttering, even me and this is what I do for a living. But most of all, he helped Ryder feel confident in talking again, and low and behold the blocks and refusing to talk stopped! Once my son wasn’t self-conscious about his stutter, he could relax, and the words could flow out.
