I am Wendy Gach-Lazar, a Speech Language Pathologist at Orchard Lake Middle School. I go by just "Miss Wendy." This is my fifth year working in West Bloomfield Schools. I have been a Speech Langauge Pathologist for the last 17 years. My passion is to give all students a means of communicating! I firmly believe SPEECH IS A RIGHT! ALL STUDENTS SHOULD BE HEARD. I believe it is my job to help students find a way to share whatever it is they want to say, in whatever means they are able to do so.
In addition to helping students learn skills and strategies that will help them in the classroom and with their peers, I try to teach them the importance of being heard and how important their own voice really is.
My husband and I have four children with whom I share my time when I am not at school.
I graduated from Kalamazoo College with a BA in Psychology/Sociology. After working with developmentally disabled seniors for several years, I returned to school and attended Eastern Michigan University to obtain my masters in speech.
I am certified through the American Speech-Language Hearing Association with my "C's" (Certificate of Clinical Competence) and licensed through the state of Michigan.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns anytime.
