New Innovative MPI-2 Stuttering Treatment Program

NEW STUTTERING THERAPY OFFERED AT ALL ISLAND SPEECH AND STUTTERING THERAPY-BOTH IN PERSON AND VIA TELE-THERAPY:  MPI-2

The MPI-2  (Modified Phonation Interval) Stuttering Treatment Program is the latest researched based program for adults and teenagers who stutter.  Read this testimonial of a medical doctor who completed the program with our center:

“I’ve stuttered since I was 4 years old. I went through all the experiences that people who stutter go through and that the rest of the world has no idea about.   Scared to meet new people because I won’t be able to say my name. Scared to order the dish in the restaurant that I wanted and instead ordered the one that was easier to say.  Scared to death of oral presentations in school.

Despite my stuttering I got into medical school.  I would get top scores in all the written tests and get barely passing grades in anything involving oral communication.  At the age of 28 I finally decided I needed speech therapy.  Using the knowledge in neuroscience I had gained in my studies, I researched for weeks on different therapy programs to see which on had the most scientific grounding.  In the end, I decided upon the MPI Program, an intensive program based on principles of biofeedback to reshape the neural networks of speech production.  I searched online to find a program near me and I found Lori.

As a person who overcame stuttering herself, Lori Melnitsky understood everything that I had gone through.  She has been extremely talented at noticing flaws in my speech patterns and giving me real time feedback in how to improve it.  Moreover she has also been flexible and supportive when things didn’t go quite right.  On top of individual speech therapy, Lori also trained me in the MPI app so I could use it over tele therapy.  The more I put into the program, the more I got back.” (medical doctor, age 28, Queens, NY 2017)
