Meet Elizabeth

Elizabeth Doherty, M.S., M.S.Ed.

Elizabeth founded Manhattan speech, language, and literacy with the mission of

spreading her love of reading to all.

Elizabeth's expertise lies at the intersection of language & learning. As a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist and Teacher with a decade of classroom experience, she is uniquely positioned to understand the complexities of speaking and reading acquisition.


Elizabeth works with students at-home in New York or internationally via Zoom. Every session is tailored to the individual strengths and interests of the student utilizing a cognitive-based, multisensory, emotionally sound approach. 

Elizabeth is conducting her own research as a doctoral candidate at the City University of New York, where she is also an Adjunct Lecturer. Her research explores how the  underlying linguistic components of word- and sentence- level reading can be emphasized in classroom contexts. She currently resides in Brooklyn with her husband and daughter.
