About Dr. Lauren
Dr. Lauren’s passion for educating, advocating, and bringing awareness to dyslexia at the domestic and international levels began in the elementary classrooms of private schools serving students with language-based learning disabilities.
She has been a certified Special Educator for a decade, and she earned her Doctor of Education in Teaching, Learning, Leadership, & Curriculum in 2019 from Northeastern University and holds a dual masters in Special Education and Elementary Education from Syracuse University and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Syracuse University.
Her dedication to providing the gold standard of instruction to individuals with dyslexia led her to obtain her endorsement at the Associate level through The Orton-Gillingham Academy in 2014. She is currently working on her course work and practicum at the Certified level. Eventually, she expanded her skill set in the public schools as a 7th and 8th grade math and English Language Arts (ELA) co-teacher before taking a position with a non-profit organization that advocates for inclusion in public schools for students with disabilities. She also worked as a middle school learning specialist, instructional coach, and served on the administrative team.
Dr. Lauren is the CEO and founder of Think Dyslexia LLC. She delivers training and professional development for teachers and administrators at the district level focusing on dyslexia awareness, dyslexia screening, and MTSS (multiple tier systems of support). Dr. Lauren has worked with over 15 school districts at the national and international level leading educators and leaders to success. Lauren resides in the suburbs of Maryland with her family and is a mother of two and her husband is a middle school educator. She has two birds, one German Shepard, and a cat.
