LLA Spotlight: Lauren Boylan

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

Lauren is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) who has been with LLA since July 2020. She serves clients in our Fairlawn office. She became a therapist because she always wanted to work with kids (she knew she would never have a boring day)! ABA treatment is not one size fits all, so it allows her to individualize treatment for each child. Lauren feels grateful to be able to collaborate on a daily basis with co-workers, families, schools, and other practitioners to help her clients grow. It is definitely a team approach! Her favorite part about being a therapist is that ABA is a growing field and still continuing to come out with new research and developments. An exciting aspect of ABA is that it is based on behavioral principles that can be used to change behavior in all aspects of our life, and is not just used with individuals with autism! Being a BCBA allows her to continuously be learning and growing in this field!

Let’s get to know Lauren better!

Describe your role at LLA:

As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), I teach and supervise registered behavior technicians (RBTs) to provide ABA treatment on a daily basis. I assess skills and behaviors to develop client treatment plans based on their own individual needs and strengths. I focus on utilizing principles of ABA to teach skills that will make meaningful changes, while decreasing problematic behaviors that may be impeding with learning these skills.

What is your favorite color?


What do you do in your free time?

I enjoy cycling and running outside!

What is your favorite sport? 


What is your best advice for kids?  

Have fun and be silly! My favorite part of working with kids is being able to laugh and have fun with them. Kids learn naturally during play and I am able to include principles of ABA into activities they find motivating!

Are you an Early riser or Night owl?

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!
