Areas of Specialization

Areas of interest/specialization include receptive and expressive language disorders, communication issues related to developmental disability and autism spectrum disorders, and written language in pediatric populations. Of particular interest is the relationship between early speech and language impairment and literacy, including reading, writing and spelling, and the impact of language impairment across the grade school through high school curriculum. She enjoys working with interdisciplinary teams to maximize student learning.         


Lisa first discovered her passion for written language disorders while at the Lab School of Washington. Over the last 25 years, Lisa has worked in public and private school settings and through her private practice with pre-K through high school-aged clients with a variety of speech, language and communication challenges. She has worked as a part of interdisciplinary teams with occupational therapists and psychologist to co-treat children with severe speech and communication challenges including childhood apraxia of speech, developmental disabilities, and autism spectrum disorders and frequently applied play-based therapy for language development. She worked extensively with teachers to understand curriculum and typical classroom expectations and to explain the impact of language impairment on students within educational settings. Particular areas of specialty include language development (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics), the impact of language impairment across the grade school through high school curriculum in reading/language arts, math, science and even co-curricular subjects, such as music, art, and foreign language, the interconnection of early speech and language impairment to literacy, including reading, spelling, and written language development. She has a strong focus on developing therapeutic goals and treatment to enable students to develop skills, use appropriate accommodations, and employ self-advocacy to maximize communication and learning across school, home, and work settings. Lisa lives in Frederick, MD with Rob, her husband Rob of 27 years, and together they have 3 sons.
