Shari D. Rosen

Founder, Director & Senior Consultant, Speech-Language Pathologist
Emerson College, US

Dr. Rosen holds a Ph.D. in communication sciences and disorders. In 2003, she began providing support services in Shanghai. Frustrated with the lack of services available for children with special needs, she envisioned the idea of ELG and founded Shanghai’s first and most successful special education center.

As director and senior consultant, Dr. Rosen plays an integral role at ELG. In addition to consulting with educators, she communicates with specialist therapists, trains staff and parents, and liaises with external organizations.

Dr. Rosen has a deep understanding of learning disabilities, having been diagnosed with ADHD and managing its impact on her learning and self-esteem throughout her life. She is especially passionate about helping individuals diagnosed with autism, as well as school-aged students with executive function difficulties. She enjoys interacting with ELG’s children and teens and believes that everyone at ELG, from the support staff to the specialists, is part of one big family.

Dr. Rosen is a member of the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA), the International Association of Special Education (IASE), and the Special Education Network in Asia (SENIA). She received the SENIA Advocacy Award in 2014 and the International Professional Women’s Society’s Social Contributor of the Year Award in 2017.
