EXCITING NEW PROGRAMS

Are you afraid to order in a restaurant? Are you afraid to say your name? Are you fearful raising your hand in class because you stutter? Let's face it. Stuttering can be debilitating. It was for me. It is time to change that and increase fluency. We offer several programs. Do not let stuttering stop you.

Welcome to improving fluency in teens and adults. Our services are supervised by our very own Lori Melnitsky who  has specialized in the treatment of stuttering and fluency disorders for over 25 years.  Lori overcame a severe stuttering disorder to help others improve fluency and confidence. 

Due to the increased demand for intensive programs for adults and teens who stutter I was privileged to train under Dr. Roger Ingham of USB to learn the innovative MPI-2 (Modify Phonation Intervals) Program. This in an intensive program I  have implemented in the past. I have seen college students and professionals such as a  med student decrease stuttering and produce more naturally sounding fluent speech.  Certain criteria must be met  before acceptance into this program.  We are screening now for July of 2018.  For more information on the MPI program please read below and contact Lori@allislandspeech.com.

Welcome to the MPI-2  program. It has been found that by shortening voiced intervals of speech we can produce more natural fluent speech.  You will need to purchase an app for your iPhone or iPad. Please read further concerning this program.

The MPI Program in the summer of 2016 changed my life. I was an entering college student at the time who was petrified talking in class.  Thanks to Lori’s expertise and the program I now speak without hesitating and my fluency has improved. I can even talk in my philosophy class which was a challenge to me. I highly recommend it.  (Michael, age 20, NY)

Lori herself uses fluency shaping programs and has participated in intensive programs.  We incorporate easy onsets, feeling vocal fold vibrations, breaking the barriers of difficult speaking situations and coordinating breathing. I have used these strategies for over 20 years and it has transformed my life and helped me accomplish things I never dreamed possible. Please email Lori@allislandspeech.com for more information.

We offer consults and hourly sessions to help you be a better public speaker and conquer your fears of public speaking.  Lori is also available for talks on stuttering to schools and organizations.
