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.

Lyann is an awesome therapist. She's very patient with my son and does her best to make each session fun and enjoyable while encouraging him to do his best.

Expressable was absolutely amazing! My son's speech therapist (Lyann) worked wonders with him! Such an amazing company!

A.D./Jan 18, 2024

Lyann and (my son) have become very familiar and comfortable with each other over time. He enjoys speech now and actually misses it when he doesn’t have it.

Was incredibly easy to set up appointment. Everyone we spoke to was nice and polite. The evaluation appointment was simple and we went over results right away.

Both therapists were absolutely amazing and patient with assisting in my daughter learning how to eat. We are all getting over being sick with the flu and covid and I can say that she is eating so much on her own now. I truly appreciate everyone.

Our speech therapist is awesome! She's very patient while encouraging my son to work hard and do his best in each session. I really can't say enough good things about her. The Expressable service is also great. The online service works really well for our family.

The therapist did a good job holding my sons attention

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!

A.E./Aug 26, 2023

[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.
