Stacey B. Landberg, MS, CCC-SLP
Stacey B. Landberg, M.S., CCC-SLP is a pediatric speech-language pathologist with 15 years of professional experience. After earning her Early Intervention Credential in Chicago in 2007, Stacey returned to Los Angeles where she has since specialized in home-based early intervention. Despite the vast ethnic and socio-economic diversity among her clients, Stacey noticed one striking similarity: EVERY caregiver has questions and concerns about their child’s media consumption. Prompted by these questions and Stacey’s own vested interest as a mother to two young children, she began a detailed analysis of the research related to screen-time for young children in 2012. Her studies have allowed her to meet and consult with national and international experts on this topic, to write parent-training materials for App Developers, and educate more than 1000 “media mentors” across the United States.
