Who am I?


I am Lori Melnitsky. I am a licensed speech language pathologist, stuttering expert,  and have directed my own private practice for over 20 years, All Island Speech and Stuttering Therapy (www.allislandspeech.com). I stuttered severely until age 30. I could not say my name or raise my hand in class to ask questions.  Over the years I have treated hundreds of children and adults who stutter.I developed the stuttering school aged boot camp course and podcast.  I was told I could not become a speech pathologist by other SLPs so my mission is to educate 
SLPs on stuttering and fluency therapy. 

Although the gift of fluency was not initially bestowed upon me, I have learned effective strategies to incorporate tools, strategies and changes in mindset to overcome the challenges of stuttering and become more fluent.  

 Leading National Stuttering Association (NSA) support group meetings for many years helped to get into the minds of PWS.  I have taught as an adjunct professor for  graduate classes on stuttering. I was a consultant for the Children's show "Arthur" on an episode on stuttering called "Maria Speaks".   I am a published author in the Journal of Fluency Disorders. I was interviewed by, Verizon and Newsday as an expert on stuttering. Other presentations include school districts, LISHA, WSHLA, and universities. Recently I was thrilled to start the Facebook Group and Podcast called Stuttering DeMystified.

I have taken several courses from Lori. Unlike many other courses her courses provide not only theory but usable treatment information that can be immediately implemented with clients. Her personal experiences make me think about each and everything I do for my clients and families. I am always excited for her next offering

I honestly learned very little about stuttering in school. “. After watching this course I feel like I can support children who stutter and their families. It’s a must watch.

I highly recommend the school aged stuttering bootcamp. As a SLP working in public schools I found this information so useful. Having a teacher who is an SLP who stutters and stuttering specialist was an added bonus. So glad I took this course.
