Laura has extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of dyslexia, having spent nine years training and working in university speech and language clinics. She has taught college courses in both Special Education and Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences, as well as worked with school districts to improve their Response to Intervention plans. She has presented at local, state, and national conferences. A native of Kansas City, Laura recently moved back to the area to be closer to her family and grandchildren. She shares our philosophy that effective treatment begins with individualized assessments. She joins Hearing and Balance to provide essential dyslexia evaluations for families in and around the greater Kansas City area.
Laura’s knowledge and experience is virtually unmatched. She deeply understands the processes and building blocks of language and reading acquisition and has the knowledge to specifically target the deficits involved in reading disabilities
As a fellow SLP I refer all potential clients who have dyslexia to Laura. She has many years of experience diagnosing and treating complex reading disorders. She is who you want to help your child when the “other programs” haven’t worked.
Laura validated my concerns over my child’s struggles and gave me hope. I’m so grateful that my child had the opportunity to work with her.
