Meet Dr. Leah Light

For the past 24 years, Dr. Light’s focus has been on neurodevelopmental audiology and Auditory Processing Disorders (APD). In addition, Dr. Light is a certified Core Specialist in the Masgutova Method (MNRI), a program for addressing retained primary reflexes, which are often at the root of  communicative disorders and learning disabilities.
