Hello! My name is Marian Rothlisberger, but most students call me Mrs. R : )
    I graduated from the University of North Texas with a Master's in Speech-Language Pathology in May 2013. The 2017-2018 school year will be my 6th year as a Speech-Language Pathologist and with Aubrey ISD, with my home at Monaco Elementary. I look forward to getting to know each of you and working alongside you to make the 2018-2019 school year the best it can be! This Fall I will also have the pleasure of supervising a UNT Speech Pathology graduate student. She will be on campus Mondays and Wednesdays and will be involved in therapy, evaluations, and ARD meetings during her time with us.
    A little bit about me... When I am not at work you can find me at home with my husband and daughter, who will be 3 in December. I am a homebody first and foremost, but I also love going for walks, gardening, swimming, and working out outside.  We are a cat family, and have 3 little fur-balls of our own. I love music and books.  I enjoy finding opportunities to bring both into the speech therapy I provide.  I believe that each person learns differently, and I work hard to ensure that every learning style is included in the therapy I provide.   
    A Speech-Language Pathologist is a licensed, certified health professional who evaluates, plans intervention programs, and provides remediation through therapy for communication disorders. 
    I work with students in Kindergarten through 4th grade with speech and/or language impairments.  This includes Articulation, Language Disorder, Stuttering, Voice Disorders, Language Processing Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and more.  Each student has a unique set of strengths and weaknesses in their communication abilities, and thus my therapy is tailored to each individual's needs.  I am also committed to ongoing education and training to keep my therapy approaches in line with the most current research and best practices. I am a member of the Denton County Special Education Co-op's Assistive Technology Evaluation Team.
    Special areas of interest for me include working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), swallowing disorders, as well as working with individuals with congenital or acquired brain injuries. 
    I look forward to not only working with, but also learning from my students this year!
