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 info@LISHA.org
