* “All Island Speech and Lori Melnitsky are definitely in the vanguard when it comes to offering direct-approach methods for treating disfluent speech – particularly in young children – as evidenced in her work with our preschool-aged son who stutters. She was able to perform her magic through endless age-appropriate activities and games to keep him engaged both at home with us and in sessions at her office while delivering the Lidcombe Program, which has resulted in significant improvement in both our son’s speech fluency and clarity of speech. Lori definitely knows what she’s talking about and has a very caring and thoughtful way about her, backed by her years of experience as a speech therapist and as a parent herself, as well as by her own experiences as someone who overcame a severe speech disorder. If you are serious about treating speech disfluency no matter the age or degree, you could do no better than to choose All Island Speech. THANK YOU, LORI!!”(Parents of a 5 year old preschool child, NYC, 2018)
