Hi! I’m Elizabeth Sautter, M.A., CCC

Speech and Language Pathologist

Before I had children, I thought that my personal and professional experience was going to equip me with all the tools and strategies needed to raise healthy, happy, well-adjusted children. But by the time my children hit adolescence, my tools weren’t working. Even as a trained professional, I struggled to find effective ways of dealing with the social and emotional needs of my children, as I helped them navigate big emotions, low motivation, and social anxiety. For years this kept me up at night, searching for more information...looking for the next tool, the next magic trick. I realized that I needed more. 

I went back to the research and literature and the philosophy of positive discipline.  I realized that there is not one magic trick or’s a process and a journey.  

I also realized that many other parents are on a similar path and would benefit from having the resources and information provided and laid out in a systematic format that they can access whenever they need and created many resources to help parents deal with their children’s social and emotional needs. 

At Make Social Learning Stick, I’m not only teaching what works, but I’m practicing it every day. It’s not always easy, but armed with successful parenting tools and a community of parents just like you, you can face parenting with renewed excitement.

What People Are Saying...

Elizabeth Sautter’s particular genius lies in her ability to teach the nuts-and-bolts of social behaviors that can lead to success across all settings: home, school, and work. Her methods provide practical help as her young clients become adolescents and then adults. Her commitment to her clients fuels her creative approach and galvanizes ongoing positive change. As a parent of young autistic adult with whom she works, I remain a true fan and am grateful for her guidance.

Elizabeth pours 200% into her relationships. We started out as clients and have become treasured friends. She truly acts from the heart and is so intentional about her work; it is so clear that she is carrying out her passion. She has had a tremendous influence on my family and my children adore her! Not only is she genuine but she’s wicked smart, is a forever learner, and is super fun! We feel most blessed to have Elizabeth in our lives.
