22 Mar Laurie Zukerberg, MS-CCC-SLP
Laurie Zukerberg is a licensed speech-language pathologist serving students at the Legacy School since 2011. Laurie is trained in PROMPT, Orton-Gillingham, Visualizing and Verbalizing (Lindamood-Bell), and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in communication sciences and disorders from the University of Maryland, College Park, and a Master of Science in speech-language pathology from Towson University. Her practice philosophy is “fast as we can, slow as we must,” and she individualizes goals for each student based upon their speech and language needs, allowing students to set the pace of lessons. All students are treated with the same long-term goal in mind- targeting the whole child and preparing them with the articulation, language and social skills needed to succeed beyond the walls of the Legacy School. Prior to Legacy, Laurie worked in a similar capacity at the Gateway School in the Hearing and Speech Agency, Friendship School in Eldersburg, and Trellis Services in Hunt Valley. Previously, she ran a small private practice from her home office.
“Legacy is an amazing place where transformations happen over time. We focus on the whole-student and offer a true team approach,” she says. “Legacy School is the greatest gift that you can give your child.”
A Fun Fact about Laurie: I have never been an “animal” person. I have always been a “kid” person! I always joked that I would have 10 kids before having a dog. My family wore me down and now I can’t imagine life without Cody!
