Laine Hallberg

Speech-Language Pathologist

I first received a Bachelor of Arts in Speech and Hearing Science from The Ohio State University in 2010. Afterwards I spent a year working in a full-inclusion kindergarten classroom with typical-developing students and those with Autism Spectrum Disorders. During this post-graduate year, my hands-on experience facilitating and observing the impact of communication on my students’ daily functioning inspired me to continue my education at the graduate level. I again attended The Ohio State University where I was a LEND (Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities) trainee through the Nisonger Center. In 2013 I earned my Master of Arts degree in Speech-Language Pathology and now I currently hold Ohio licensure in Speech-Language Pathology, a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and a Pupil Services License from the Ohio Department of Education.

I have experience working with individuals from infancy to adulthood in a mental health facility, public school, and private practice. My extended expertise is working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders and augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device users, specifically those using the Prentke-Romich Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP) program. Working with early language or functional communication learners is my favorite area of this field because I get to teach the amazing purpose of communication. Taking a child from no means of communication to getting to express his/her wants and needs is a one-of-a-kind feeling that I feel so lucky to get to experience! Outside of treatment you can often find me collaborating with other professionals, talking to families, and researching treatment strategies as I am dedicated to providing holistic, functional, meaningful services for my patients and their families while advocating for their success in all of their daily environments.
