Lidcombe Stuttering Therapy

Lidcombe Stuttering Therapy for Preschool Children Comes to Long Island

Don't Wait to get help..  Stuttering in Children...


Many children experience periods of disfluency or stuttering between the ages of 2 ½ and 5.  These children are often described as “anxious” or “nervous because the words do not flow easily out of their mouth.  Parents understandably become upset and are unsure of where to turn.  Pediatricians often say they will outgrow it and there is no reason to worry.    In the meantime, both child and parents become frustrated.  Parents are NOT to blame for stuttering and require support.


The goal of the Lidcombe program is to train parents to deliver the treatment in their child’s environment on a daily basis.  It involves weekly visits to a speech language pathologist trained in this program and follow up activities at home.  The basic therapy is individualized for each child with follow up sessions scheduled at home.  Many parents have turned to Lori Melnitsky, Director of All Island Speech and Stuttering Therapy, a Lidcombe trained speech pathologist, because their child started stuttering. Her Plainview center offers speech and language therapy with a Lidcombe trained therapist and provides support, encouragement, family participation and an individually tailored goal oriented treatment program.   “It is remarkable to see the rapid success rate of Lidcombe used with preschool children who stutter and their parents who have been frustrated with other approaches”.


The services of Lori Melnitsky, Lidcombe trained Speech/Language Pathologist is a valuable means of increasing success and decreasing frustration for children and their families.  For more information,  call Lori Melnitsky 516-776-0184 or e-mail:

"Lila started kindergarten this month. We wanted to let you know that she was screened by her school speech therapist this week. When we told the speech therapist that Lila had received services for stuttering, she said she would have never known. Lila does not stutter anymore and we can’t thank you enough.”
