About Lori

Lori Melnitsky, MA CCC-SLP, has been an ASHA certified and NYS licensed speech/language pathologist for over 20 years and has helped hundreds of children, teens and adults in her diverse professional lifetime. She has completed advanced training in Lidcombe stuttering, MPI Stuttering, feeding, PROMPT, Orton Gillingham and the Barton Dyslexia Course. Lori served as a consultant to the children's show Arthur of an episode on stuttering. She was featured in Newsday following the King's Speech and was an honored guest at the premiere due to her expertise on the subject of stuttering.  Lori is one of the few speech pathologists to be trained by Dr. Roger Ingham in California on the Modified Phonation Interval (MPI) program which has helped teens, college students and adults achieve more fluent lives with confidence and evidenced based skills.
 
Lori stuttered severely up until her early 20's. She could not participate in class, call friends on the phone or say her name. Her daughter stuttered as a child but stopped with intervention. Lori has family members with dyslexia and ADHD which led her into a life coaching role as well to inspire others to succeed. This inspired her to begin a path to help others read,write and spell. She was one of the first Speech Pathologists on Long Island to become Prompt Certified for apraxia and Oral Motor therapy.
 
Her personal background along with her long standing commitment to the field has made her a sought after author, consultant, and presenter both locally and nationally.  She has taught at local universities as an adjunct professor and is determined to share the wealth of knowledge and experience she has amassed in her well known and highly regarded private practice, All Island Speech and Stuttering Therapy.

LIDCOMBE WORKS- “We took our daughter, Angelina to Lori for speech therapy for about a year. We are very happy with the results. Angelina started stuttering when she was approximately 2.5 years old and was becoming aware of her speech problem. On her worst days she could not say a word, which worried my wife and I tremendously. My wife Victoria found Lori’s information online and we visited Lori in Long Island (from NJ) and started the Lidcombe Program. Over the next year, Angelina’s stuttering rating dropped from 9 to 10 (very severe) to a virtually unnoticeable pauses in our daughter’s speech. My wife and I are very thankful to Lori for working with our daughter and helping her overcome stuttering.”
