Previously, Laurie spent many years as the Executive Director of a non-profit organization that served adults and children with developmental disabilities. She has a Master’s Degree in Therapeutic Recreation from San Francisco State University. This background supports Dr. Kaplan in his treatment of children with vision-related learning issues.
