About Me

A little something about me.

Rachel Betzen is a Texas based Speech Language Pathologist, born in Florida and raised in Texas. She completed her Masters in Communication Disorders from the University of Houston, Texas in 2003.

Rachel Betzen, M.A., CCC/SLP, started Dallas Reading and Language Services as a private practice in Dallas, Texas offering speech-language therapy and reading programs to children in 2005. Rachel overcame many speech and reading hurdles of her own as a child and has healed from several health setbacks and conquered her own challenges as an adult. These experiences made her truly passionate about the work she does and allows her to empathize with the kids with whom she and her staff currently work. Rachel has learned how improving a child’s speech fundamentals and providing the proper tools that empower children to learn how to read have a very real and powerful long-term affect in life.

Rachel and her staff believe in the abilities of the children they work with and always seek to meet the individual needs of each child to bring even faster results. Accordingly, Dallas Reading and Language Services students perform well, many reaching the point where their speech-language and reading skills catch up to their grade level. That is the end goal for each child and Dallas Reading and Language Services helps bring children to that goal, quickly.

In 2015, Dallas Reading and Language Services has experienced incredible growth through establishing a team of passionate speech-language therapists to improve the lives of students and families in the Dallas, Texas area.

Rachel Betzen continues to work in our Oak Cliff office serving clients from around the DFW metroplex.
