Hello! My name is Laura Hughes, and I am the district's Speech Language Pathologist. I provide speech therapy services to students in grades K-12. This is my second year providing speech and language services in Richland School District, and my 7th year practicing speech language pathology within the school setting.
I earned my Master of Science in Speech Language Pathology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in May 2014, and immediately began my career as a school-based clinician in August 2014. Additionally, I have earned and maintained ASHA certification and my license to practice speech language pathology in the state of Pennsylvania. I have always loved working within the school setting and supporting my students as they reach their goals and build confidence. I strive to make each one of my therapy sessions engaging, fun, and supportive as my students work to build the speech and language skills they need to succeed.
Outside of my work as a speech language pathologist, I am a mom of two toddler boys, Colton and McCoy. We reside in New Florence, and we enjoy spending time outside, reading books, and playing games. In my free time, I love to read, cheer on the Pittsburgh Penguins, and go fishing.
I am looking forward to another wonderful school year!
