Introducing Beth Jack!

LLA Therapy is pleased to introduce Beth Jack! Beth Jack has been a public educator for 36 years.  She has taught learning disabled, gifted, kindergarten, and first grade students.  She holds a elementary education from The University of Akron and a M.Ed. in special education from Kent State University.  She is also a Certified Academic Language Therapist and a Structured Literacy Dyslexia Specialist. 

Keep reading to learn more about her expertise that she will be bringing to LLA.

For the past 36 years Beth Jack has worked as a public educator, primarily dedicated to teaching kindergarten and first grades.  It was in the mid 80’s, during her tenure teaching kindergarten in a whole-language developmental kindergarten program, that Beth discovered many children who entered school full of promise, with exceptional language skills, and a vast wealth of knowledge, but failed miserably when trying to master the reading process.  This experience led Beth to begin researching the science of reading acquisition.  These studies prompted her to obtain specific skills in the Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes.  She received training in Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing (LiPS), Seeing Stars, and Visualizing and Verbalizing programs.  Furthermore, she learned how to administer and interpret the Lindamood Auditory Conceptualization Test and the Test of Symbol Imagery. An important aspect of the Lindamood -Bell training was the emphasis on an accurate diagnosis through a comprehensive evaluation. 

In teaming with psychologists, and speech pathologists, over a period of many years, Beth learned to assist in the identification of dyslexia through the use of multiple standardized measures of language and literacy.  This extensive evaluation process helps identify children’s  strengths and weaknesses in the reading processes.  It also targets the type of instruction necessary in the training of individuals to help them learn to their potential. In 2018, due to Beth’s passion to further her understanding and to keep current with the science of reading, Beth completed the certification process to become a Certified Academic Language Therapist and Dyslexia Specialist.  As a result,  she learned to implement the Multisensory Teaching Approach (MTA).  Finally, and most recently, she completed training in the Neuhaus Education Center’s curriculum, Basic Language Skills. 

Over many years, through various training experiences, Beth has learned to appreciate the value in matching the structured literacy program to the student’s unique learning profile.  Throughout Beth’s career she has helped numerous families and their children identify specific learning needs and target instructional practices through structured literacy programs.  Beth’s continued desire to learn and implement best practices based on the current science of reading processes, will help LLA Therapy bring reading processes, evaluations, and support to many struggling readers.

Crystal Scheibe

Great place, glad we found them. Been going to Medina over 2 months now and he loves Lauryn and Kyler. Wish they had more ABA therapy places available... live in Wooster and long drive everyday.

Karrie Swan LaRock

My 11 year old son has dyslexia and has made noticeable gains in working At LLA THERAPY. Katie is strong in her approach toward him and also keeps him comfortable enough to perform well. We will continue visiting both the Fairlawn and Hudson offices and recommend them highly.

Ron Monroe

My 9 year old just completed about 9 months of weekly speech sessions (due to his stuttering) with Matt Hagge at LLA and we are thrilled with the experience and results. What I thought might be a negative (what kid really wants to go to speech class?) was made very positive by Matt, and my son never hesitated or complained when we talked about class. He really enjoyed it and really took what Matt taught him to heart. His speech has been greatly improved and we definitely recommend LLA. Thank you so much!

Heather Dougherty-Pantoja

My son’s Occupational Therapist, Jess, is an amazing OT! She gives practical tips on working with my son at home and school!

Terri Apgar

I cannot say enough good things about LLA Therapy. My daughter was a client of Teal Simmons’ for approximately 2 years and was just released from speech therapy! She was diagnosed with Apraxia in 2015 and worked with Teal twice a week. Through Teal’s application of PROMPT therapy, my daughter had age-appropriate speech after one year. All of the staff we interacted with at LLA were absolutely wonderful. They really care about what they do and making sure your child achieves their goals.

Kelli Geisler Davisson

LLA Therapy has been an excellent experience for my son as well as my family! My son always asks, "When can I go see Ms. Jeannine again, is it Monday??" He has also made huge gains in only 5 months! I would highly recommend LLA and have already shared my experience with friends looking for services!

Victoria Hansford-Price

We are so grateful for our Speech Therapist Ms.Teal. We have seen a great improvement with our sons confidence and communication abilities since we have started "Prompt" therapy. What we love the most about LLA and Ms. Teal is that Kohl feels comfortable and relaxed which has played a critical role in his progress. Thank you Ms. Teal for all you have done.

Laura Lee Hogsett

They have helped in numerous ways. Speech, OT and behavioral. I've had numerous compliments on my son's progress thanks in very large part to LLA. I would recommend LLA before I recommend our local children's hospitals, though they are good, they don't have the staff that LLA does.

Amy Furukawa

We had a great experience with Matt Hagge at LLA! Our Middle School age son was becoming very conscious of his voice, which is nasal due to a cleft palate. Matt helped him to better form his sounds and project his voice in a way that makes the unavoidable nasality less noticeable.Our son is more confident and outgoing & even took on a speaking role in the church play. Matt has the perfect personality to relate with our son, and we would recommend him to anyone needing speech therapy services!

Jessica Havalotti

LLA Therapy has been an excellent experience for our daughter. I would highly recommend LLA. Miss Grace was so amazing and I can't believe how quickly our daughter showed improvement. Thank you!
