Lori Crawford


Hello!  My name is Lori Crawford.  I have been a Speech and Language Therapist at Deer Lakes School District since 2005.  I have serviced children in grades kindergarten through 12th grade.  Prior to Deer Lakes, I worked for the Allegheny Intermediate Unit for 4 years.
After graduating from Deer Lakes High School, I attended The Pennsylvania State University and Duquesne University where I received my Bachelor and Master's degrees.
I reside in West Deer Township with my husband, Thomas Crawford (who is a MS science teacher), our son Matthew, and daughter Jordyn who attend Deer Lakes School District. We also have a chocolate lab named Murphy and an orange tabby cat named Ollie.  


Speech and Language Homework

All students have a speech google classroom.  Please see his/her page for detailed information about what we are working on and what can be done at home to support your child.

Should I have my child screened?

If you are concerned about your child's speech or language development, please reach out to his or her teacher or me!  I am able to help determine if speech services are needed. If you are participating in [email protected] or Lancer Academy, we would need to schedule a time for you to bring your child in for a screening.
