About

After earning her M.A. in Learning Disabilities from Northwestern University in 2006, Elizabeth worked with elementary school, middle school, and college students in both private practice and school settings. She returned to Northwestern University as a Lecturer and Clinical Supervisor in the Department of Communication Sciences to teach both undergraduate and graduate students in the Learning Disabilities program. It was there that she developed a particular interest in the clients who were receiving services for both learning disabilities and speech and language disorders.
She went on to earn her M.A. in Speech Language Pathology from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and since that time, she has worked in both hospital and private clinic settings providing services for both learning disabilities and speech and language disorders.
She particularly enjoys working with children who are learning to read and write, and working with children whose challenges with language span listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
