Lauren Rosenblum earned a Master of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Teachers College, Columbia University. She holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), as well as a license to practice Speech Pathology in both New York and Connecticut. Additionally, Lauren is certified as a Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities (TSSLD) in New York State, and an IBCCES Certified Student Mental Health Specialist (SMHS).

As a speech-language pathologist and neurodiversity coach, Lauren specializes in communication disorders and is passionate about helping her clients communicate more effectively, process the world around them, and foster positive relationships with others. She works with clients of all ages and abilities on social skills (e.g., friendship-building, dating, relationship maintenance, social safety, nonverbal language, and self-advocacy), independent living skills (e.g., budgeting, cooking, cleaning), executive functioning (time management, planning and prioritizing, making and keeping appointments), and college/career planning, transitioning, and development through supportive, reflective conversations and role-playing.

Lauren brings years of experience working as a learning specialist in Manhattan, where she delivered daily one-on-one remediation sessions to students with various learning disabilities. She is passionate about using her clients’ interests to highlight their strengths and engage them as they tackle their weaknesses. Working in schools, Lauren helped many students research, apply to, and get accepted into college. After seeing the importance of individualized education, she founded Virtuo Tutors LLC, a private tutoring company designed to provide quality educational supports to students.

Autism & Aspergers
“The impulse to heal is real and powerful and lies within the client. Our job is to evoke that healing power… and support it in its expression and development. We are not the healers. We are the context in which healing is inspired.”
- Ron Kurtz


“Trauma is not what happens to us, but what we hold inside in the absence of an empathetic witness...Trauma is about loss of connection—to ourselves, our bodies, our families, to others, and to the world around us. This disconnection is often hard to recognize because it doesn't happen all at once but rather over time.”
- Peter Levine
