Adding Orton-Gillingham Reading Services to Your Practice with Elizabeth Doherty

Adding Orton-Gillingham Reading Services to Your Practice with Elizabeth Doherty

 

Thinking about adding Orton Gillingham to your own private practice? You’ll love this episode of Private Practice Success Stories! 

I sat down with Elizabeth Doherty, who is a speech-language pathologist and reading specialist with a private practice in New York called Manhattan Speech, Language & Literacy. 

After working in the schools, she decided to start her private practice in order to gain more flexibility and financial freedom. 

In this episode, she talks about her interest in the relationship between speech, language, and reading, and how that led her to discover the Orton Gillingham approach which she added to her private practice. Elizabeth discusses how this niche focus has helped her find success with clients, increase her rates, and provide training to other SLPs.

She also talks about how having her own practice has allowed her immense freedom and flexibility in her life as a mom and a doctoral student. 

Elizabeth founded Manhattan Speech, Language & Literacy, LLC, in 2013 with the mission to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary for career success in the 21st century. With the unique perspective of both a speech-language pathologist and reading teacher, Elizabeth supports both oral and printed language, helping students gain proficiencies that translate across speaking, hearing, processing, reading, writing, and spelling.

 

In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:

 

  • The power of choosing a niche that helps you stand out 
  • The truth about the compensation we deserve as SLPs and OTs
  • The key to getting confident and asking for referrals 
  • The one thing Elizabeth did that helped her private practice take off
  • How you can make your private practice work for you in any season of life
  • The simple math for how your private practice can help you work less and make more 
  • How offering Orton Gillingham services in her private practice helped Elizabeth find her passion and grow her impact
  • How Elizabeth is using her knowledge to empower and educate other SLPs with her course 

 

I hope you enjoyed this conversation with Elizabeth! She is a perfect example of someone who noticed a need in her community and filled it by offering trainings to other SLPs, which helps to grow her own practice and support the SLP community around her.
