Welcome to Huntington Speech and Feeding!

Huntington Speech & Feeding is a results oriented affordable private practice established by Lori Wasserman-Rizzo. Lori is a NYS and ASHA certified pediatric speech-language pathologist with over 20 years of direct experience. She believes in the philosophy that the best tool that makes a difference in one's recovery is the training and expertise of the treating therapist.

We achieve optimal results by utilizing the child's strengths to facilitate the child's areas of need. Lori and her staff view the family as an integral part of therapy and evaluation processes. They are at the cutting edge of all evidence based therapy programs, practices and techniques to help those they serve.
