Testimonials


"I was starting a job with a new airline and my speech started to deteriorate with the stress of training. I thought I was not going to be able to make it through the rigors of the training environment and initial flying experience in a new plane with new things that had to be said on demand. Lori helped me a great deal by getting me back to the fundamentals of speaking that I knew from therapy, but was not applying them properly. After five sessions with Lori, I was able to more comfortably continue with the training process and now I am progressing well with continued practice. Lori was great at getting me back on target."
(Matt, airline pilot, adult who stutters)

A practice that works with Children, Teens and Adults

Director, Lori Melnitsky, MA CCC-SLP, knew she wanted to work with children, teens and adults, in part because she herself overcame a severe stuttering disorder and is also the proud parent of two wonderful daughters, one with dyslexia and ADHD and the other who stuttered as a preschooler but stopped with intervention.

With over 20 years of direct experience Lori's practice specializes in stuttering/fluency therapy for all ages and also customizes therapy programs for those with learning and literacy challenges. We provide Orton Gillingham and Prompt Certified therapy.

Feel free to talk to Lori personally at 516-776-0184 or email her in confidence at Lori@allislandspeech.com. Part of what makes this practice unique is the degree of empathy and understanding that is always offered. Lori's personal passion, life coaching, wealth of experience and knowledge is apparent.
