Facilitator

Lauren Britt

Lauren Britt is a Speech-Language Pathologist who helps elementary students (K-5) build effective communication skills in order to live meaningful and purposeful lives. In addition to elementary-aged student, she has experience working with children from birth to 5-years-old. Although she works primarily with students in Special Education, she collaborates regularly with classroom teachers and has observed that students of all abilities and backgrounds can benefit from the strategies she frequently uses. 

Lauren believes that vocabulary is the building block of language and language is the vehicle that allows individuals to learn about their world and connect with others.  It is the foundational skills which children need to become competent and capable learners and succeed in school and life.  

She has worked primarily with children from low socio-economic backgrounds, with English language learners and with children who have experienced adverse childhood trauma. Her caseload has included students with deficits in receptive language, expressive language, articulation, oral motor skills, pragmatic language and oral fluency. While her students have a variety of medical diagnoses and educational disabilities, she believes that with the appropriate tools, strategies and support, all students are capable of making personal and academic growth. 

Lauren works in Adams 12 school district. She works directly with a full caseload of students with educational disabilities, serves as part of the district speech-language assessment team and collaborates with classroom teachers through Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS). In addition, she collaborates with general education teachers in her school to modify assignments, differentiate text, support vocabulary acquisition and improve student success inside and outside of the classroom.

Lauren is a  licensed Specialized Service Provider with the Colorado Department of Education and a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist with the Department of Regulatory Agencies. Additionally, she holds her Certificate of Clinical Competence with the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

She received her MS in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Eastern Illinois University and her BS in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Illinois State University.
