About me

Hello! I'm Lyann. I became a speech-language pathologist (SLP) in 2016. I became an SLP because I was interested in the field of special education. I have an aunt who was diagnosed with Down syndrome, and I wanted to be able to help others who needed a voice to be heard. I love working with children and adults. I have been working with children since the age of 14 as a Sunday school teacher, and I have a passion to work with children. I love that in this career I am able to work with children and adults who have difficulty with communication, swallowing, cognition, and social communication. I enjoy every minute of my job and treat others as if they were part of my own family. I love to see the smile on the parents' faces when they hear their child communicate for the first time. That is what this career is all about. I have been taught visual phonetics, which I have seen help many of my patients working on articulation skills. I have worked in outpatient rehab facilities, nursing homes, and hospital settings. My clinical style is individualized/personalized. I like to follow the child's lead. In addition, I do like routine-based sessions in which I have created structure. Parent teaching and involvement is very important when working with my clients. I want to make sure everyone who is working with the child is working as a team to reach the child's goals.

The therapist did a good job holding my sons attention

M.W./Sep 24, 2023

I can see a big difference in my daughters speech since starting her sessions. I’ve been able to learn a lot as well on how to help her outside of therapy. The biggest difference I’ve seen is that my daughter seems less frustrated when I’m working with her in trying to communicate more.

E.N./Sep 19, 2023

Our speech therapist is wonderful and patient. She always makes sessions fun for my six year old son.

S.L./Sep 16, 2023

We love Lyann! She is so patient and explains everything so well so that my daughter has the opportunity to learn and comprehend!

[My child] has made a lot of progress. He’s made noticeable improvement and although he can be difficult to work with, you’re always patient and supportive.

Our speech therapist is awesome! I really can't say enough good things about her. She's very sweet and patient with my six year old son. We've been having sessions for about a year now, and my son has made so much progress. She's great about keeping him on task while encouraging him to work hard and have fun at the same time. The platform itself is also great. Very flexible and easy to use.
