Construction is currently underway inside the new building. The Institute will occupy the entire second and one third of the third floor of the building. The second floor will house the majority of the therapy offices, 4 studios, a waiting room, several administration offices, and a staff room. The third floor will contain two conference rooms and a few more offices.

One of the highlights of the space will be the state-of the art classrooms, with a seating capacity of up to 100 people. In addition, the studios and offices will contain updated technology for recording sessions and projects.
The Institute’s current home was established in 1960, when a group of families treated by Dr. Ackerman established a non-profit institute to allow him to expand his training activities. The building retains the charm of bygone days, creating a sense of nostalgia and a reluctance to say farewell. The site will be missed, but everyone is very excited to be part of the expansion of the Ackerman Institute.
