If you’re wondering what adult therapy looks like at AIS, the live-streamed therapy here. It’s a great way to get a first hand look at their services: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=nw3XkNhEpbc
I attended the American Institute for Stuttering approximately ten years ago. It has changed quite a bit since then. I went through an intensive stuttering course which utilized strategies to desensitize negative reactions to stuttering as well as promote fluency through vocal fold management. Myself, nor the other people I attended with (4 others) did not experience lasting gains in fluency and upon re-entering normal life, many of the anxieties associated with stuttering quickly returned. The staff was and is very well meaning and supportive of people who stutter. Their heart is in the right place. However, from what I've seen of their clients, fluency increases are usually not achieved. So, if this is one of your primary goals I would not recommend this organization. However, if you're looking to embrace your stutter, gain encouragement on your stuttering journey, and be taught some psychological tools to help you cope better with stuttering, this may be a good choice for you. A recently posted video of a client who has been working with AIS for five years is on youtube. She is happier with her stutter and life, however, fluency gains are absent. So, depending on your goals for your stuttering, you might consider this institution. However, I would suggest a thorough weighing of all the options out there.
