LISHA Officers

The Long Island Speech-Language-Hearing Association (LISHA), is the largest regional speech-language-hearing association in the country. The Association provides its members with opportunities for increasing knowledge in the communication field and promotes high professional standards for its members. LISHA is also a resource for the community, providing information on speech, language and hearing disorders in children and adults, and on legislation affecting individuals with disabilities. We are proud of LISHA’s long-standing commitment to professional growth and community service.

We meet seven times a year with a unity of purpose to plan the actions and activities that will benefit LISHA members as well as serve the community. Come see for yourselves. LISHA’s officers can be contacted at
