Avivit is the Founder and Clinical Director at Great Speech, Inc, founded in 2014. She trailblazed virtual access to speech therapy, allowing anyone who is committed to improving their communication to receive expert services--regardless of location or scheduling limitations. Her work has been featured on Good Morning America, the US News and World Report, the Miami Herald, and more. When Avivit was 14 years old, her family immigrated to the United States. At the time, she didn’t speak English, and she struggled to communicate at school. This inspired her to help other people avoid the frustrations she experienced. However, after working as a speech therapist for over a decade, she saw countless situations where people could not access the therapeutic services they needed. Traditional methods of therapy didn’t integrate easily with modern-day lifestyles. Avivit began experimenting with technology to deliver speech therapy entirely online. Not only did this allow greater convenience, but it also enabled her to hire the best therapists in the country and leverage a highly personalized client-to-therapist pairing process. Now, Great Speech employs over 50 therapists and serves over thousands of clients with varying areas of focus, including Traumatic Brain Injury. www.greatspeech.com
