About Elizabeth

Elizabeth Deutsch, MS CCC/SLP, specializes in the treatment of individuals with language based learning deficits, social cognitive challenges, and motor-speech deficits. She pursued a Masters in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the MGH Institute of Health Professions after working as support staff at a therapeutic day school in California, the Oak Hill School. Her learning trajectory and understanding of social, cognitive, and language based learning deficits has been molded by relationship based developmental models for treating a wide variety of needs related to attention, learning, memory, social cognition, language, and play. She has a background in Floor Time Intervention, and has sought out training under developmental specialists who understand the value of incorporating multi-sensory learning materials into their treatment. Elizabeth helps educators, clinicians, professionals of all types, and parents/family members support a person’s social and academic success.

Elizabeth offers individual and group therapy services for the pediatric and young adult population. She integrates concepts related to social thinking, executive functioning, and emotion sharing into her sessions.
