Elizabeth Ehrensing, MCD, CCC-SLP
Elizabeth received a bachelor’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology at Texas Christian University and a master’s degree in Communication Disorders from LSUHSC School of Allied Health in New Orleans. She holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
Since 1995 she has worked with both adults and children focusing on neurological disorders and early childhood development and has gained considerable experience with assistive technology and speech generating devices. After working in hospital, home health and multidisciplinary private practice settings, she established EME Speech Therapy, LLC. Elizabeth joined the LSU ALS Clinic Team in April 2010. She has contributed to the growth of the LSU ALS Clinic from just a few allied health professionals to a full multidisciplinary team who specialize in caring for the individual needs of patients with ALS.
Striving to provide the best care and referrals in the areas of cognitive communication, speech, and swallowing disorders, facilitating the acquisition of appropriate assistive technology and speech generating devices when appropriate and providing support to patients and families are one of her greatest professional joys.
