After graduating from Towson University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, Lisa McGrain earned her Master of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Loyola University in Maryland in 2008. Upon graduation, Lisa began working at HASA’s Scottish Rite Childhood Speech and Language Center as a licensed and certified SLP, and has been there ever since. After working full time for 6 ½ years, she now works as a part-time therapist which allows her to stay at home with her young daughter, Ryleigh.
In 2015, Lisa developed and implemented a program geared toward children who are beginning to read. This camp, which runs each summer at both locations, targets pre-literacy and narrative language skills. In addition to her clinical responsibilities at The Scottish Rite Center, Lisa is also placed at two contractual schools, providing therapy to the students of The School of the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen and The Friends School of Baltimore, and supervises and mentors graduate students from local-area universities studying in the field of speech-language pathology. She taught an undergraduate course, Organic Bases of Childhood Communication Disorders, as an adjunct instructor at Loyola University in Maryland, her alma mater.
Regardless of the diagnosis or age of her clients, Lisa enjoys using the iPad in therapy to target treatment goals and to serve as motivation for her clients. Lisa is licensed by the State of Maryland, and she is certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
