LLA Spotlight: Beth Jack

We have amazing therapists at LLA and want to showcase them to you! This week, meet Beth Jack!

Beth is an Academic Language Therapist / Dyslexia Specialist who has been with LLA for 8 months! She serves clients at our Fairlawn clinic. She became a therapist because she wanted to help struggling readers become fluent readers and writers. Her favorite part about being a therapist is seeing children be successful!

Share a success story!

One of my favorite success stories when working with children is observing children experience success with print through a structured literacy approach to learning.  Their self-esteem grows as they become successful.  Sometimes it’s like walking out from under  a dark cloud.  They are happy and enjoy learning for the very first time.
