My name is Laurie McGraw.  I have been employed at WES  as a speech therapist since my move back to Waynesboro, my hometown, in 2003.  I lived in Shreveport, LA since 1976 and attended college  at LA Tech, in Ruston, LA for my undergraduate degree in Speech/Language Therapy.   While working as a speech therapist in Caddo Parish School System, in Shreveport,  I graduated with a Master's degree in Communication Disorders from LSU-Medical Center, School of Allied Health, in Shreveport, LA in 1989. Throughout my career I have worked in various settings:  school systems, nursing homes and acute/rehab hospitals.

I enjoy working as a speech therapist at WES.  Working with children who have speech difficulties is a challenge and also very rewarding, as every child is different.  Phonemic skills are very important for isolating sounds, sound blending skills and learing to read.

Since my move home, I married again and now live in Waynesboro most of the time.  My husband, John and I have a home in Mobile, where we also spend some time.  We have 2 dogs and love the "great outdoors".  It is wonderful to be back home with my family and we hope to live in Waynesboro full time in the very near future.
