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.
